Morning Glory's Ram - Rich


Today’s trivia question: What do you get when you cross a moorit gulmoget ewe with a grey katmoget ram? Answer: a solid black ram lamb. Fortunately, he carries moorit, and there is a 50% chance that he also carries nice spotting.
This ram is Morning Glory’s entry into the nice lamb category. His fleece is very uniform as well, but not quite as tight and crimpy as Sparkles’. In terms of build though, Morning Glory’s guy is tops. I think his structure is very close to Betulina’s ram, but he’s a touch smaller. Of course, he’s a week younger, so that’s not exactly a shocker. I do think he’ll be slightly more refined than Betulina’s, however. Both rams are very similar. Black Walnut is the father. Perfect little tail as well.

That's the way I felt when I crossed a fawn gulmoget scurred ram with a musket probably half-poll ewe and got a dark brown ram lamb with HUGE horn buds. But he's such a looker, it's hard to be disappointed.
