Silver Maple is for sale - Jen

This is Silver Maple, our yuglet sokket katmoget ram out of Cihat and Fantasia. We love him, but can't use him this year for a variety of reasons not related to his quality. Mainly we just don't have enough breeding pens! His fleece is spectacular. I know that word gets used a lot, but if you are looking for a ram to improve your fleeces, I strongly recommend him. Its intermediate, soft, crimpy and consistent from neck to britch. Where the britch gets black, it gets a little courser.

He has a great temperment, is halter broke, but isn't overly friendly. He is spotted and katmoget, so you have many possibilities and options if you use him in your breeding program.

The first fleece photo is of his side, the spot where we take samples for micron testing. The second fleece photo is just at the rump. Trying to show how consistent his fleece is.

We can send more photos, fleece samples and more detailed info on our assessment of him, please send us an email for more info. Also, we are waiting for his micron results, will publish as soon as available.

We are bringing him to Rhinebeck to show, but after the animals are released on Sunday he will be ready for pickup! He is ready to go now also, so if you want him before Rhinebeck, we can make arrangements for delivery/pickup.
