For 2011 matings, we used a pedigree Wiltshire Horn ram, Celyn Pedro on the theaves and ewes.
Pedro was bought at the WHS sale at Stoneleigh as a ram lamb, having been a class winner at the competitive 2011 Royal Welsh show.
Pedro did a really good job for us and covered all the
ewes at the first opportunity, giving us a tight lambing period of three weeks.
We sold him at the WHS Stoneleigh sale as a shearling where he realised third top price in the sale.
We hope he has done a good job in the Cumbrian fells where he now resides.
Millwood Dylan, by Cynfarwy John, (left) was our pedigree sire for the 2012 matings. He was a ram lamb himself and a splendid example of the breed.
He was purchased from the WHS Exeter sale in October 2012.
We had a tight lambing period from his ewes and the lambs have done well.
He has sired a ram lamb that we think is promising (out of an Abbess ewe by Kislingbury Quaver) - below. Our norm is to castrate the male lambs in the first few days of life so that they can concentrate on growing rather than the ladies, so we are watching his progress carefully, with the hope that he will be good enough to make the grade and become a flock sire. He has good width and length of body and his horns are shaping up nicely.
