Omar (PFR 934)
Twin - Born 2016-03-05
Sire: Kalina 514 (Kal)     Dam: PFR 673

This straight white ram drafted into duty after the untimely death of his sire. As a lamb, he settled the majority of our white flock on the first go-around. He passed on his gorgeous fleece, strong frame and wonderful breed type.  He is RR at codon 171.

Sold into another flock in 2018 as we purchased new rams for genetic diversity.

Single - Born 2013-01-26
Sire: Moosehill 254     Dam: Moosehill 112

Purchased as a yearling in 2014, Miogi was selected for his length of loin and overall traditional Romney breed character, both of which he is passing on to his lambs. He has an excellent disposition. 




Kal (Kalina 514)

Kal (Kalina 514)
Twin - Born 2014-11-08
Sire: Kalina Barker 1135 "Mac"     Dam: Barker 775 "Tinkerbell"

It's hard to make a trip across the country and NOT pick out a new ram, as we well know. When we spotted this fall ram lamb in the Kalina Barker pens, we went in for a closer look and liked what we saw.  Square-built and rugged with a beautiful fleece and plenty of breed character, Kal is a nice fit for our breeding goals.  RR at Codon 171. His first lambs arrived February, 2016. 

Tragically, Kal died in the summer of 2016 as the result of a fight with another ram. We kept a son (PFR 934, Omar) to replace him. 




Mort (Morton 0080)

Mort (Morton 0080)
Twin - Born 2012-04-15
Sire: Pitchfork 433 - AI     Dam: Morton 00500

We were hoping to bring back this boy's sire when the Mortons were done with him, but they couldn't bring themselves to part with him alive, so this is as close as we got. Mort passes on his outstanding fleece, great structure and athleticism to his lambs. 

Mort was sold to 3-S Romneys (Penny Swearingen) in the fall of 2016 to continue his breeding career. 




Bullock 0561 (Cyrus)

Bullock 0561 (Cyrus)

Bullock 0561 (Cyrus)

Cyrus was purchased from Larry and Gaylia Bullock in Washington State. His sire, Claymoor 474-00 Imp. was a white ram imported by the Bullocks in 2002 from New Zealand. Cyrus passed on his excellent fleece and conformation to his lambs and moved our black flock significantly forward.

We lost Cyrus to cancer in the spring of 2012. We have a fair number of his daughters in our ewe flock that should cross well with the new bloodlines we are bringing in.




Barnes 8007 (Halsey)

Barnes 8007 (Halsey)

Barnes 8007 (Halsey)

Halsey was purchased as a yearling from Lynn and Ethelma Barnes in the spring of 2009. His first lambs arrived in February, 2010. We appreciate the thickness, correct conformation and excellent breed character this ram has brought to our flock.

This ram is the sire of the Supreme Champion White Ram at the 2010 NYSWF. He is also the sire of the 2011 Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival Best Fleeced Romney, bred by Pitchfork and owned by Justin Andress of Windy Oaks Farm, Ottsville, PA.

Sadly, we lost Halsey in June 2013 to intestinal torsion. We have retained a son to take over where he left off.

Malcolm (SORB 165)
Single - Born 2011-02-21
Sire: Moosehill 233     Dam: SORB 117

We spotted this ram at the 2012 ARBA National Show in Oregon. We loved his straight, thick top, large, correct frame and excellent breed character, not to mention his beautiful, dark charcoal fleece. JoAnn and Kathy at Southern Oregon Romneys being the great salespeople that they are, we soon struck a deal and had him on a trailer back east before they could change their minds. His lambs exhibit many of his best attributes and his daughter are blending well with our other rams.
