GBR 1042 "Charley Pride"

Registered Katahdin Ram

GBR 1042 is a young Katahdin ram I seen in the background of a shared photo and instantly wanted to follow this ram’s progress.  Very solid animal raised by my friends Etienne and Isabella Richards of Gibraltar Farm in New York.  Being in the top 1% of WWT and PWWT is no easy accomplishment and to still maintain some parasite resistance is a plus.  Gibraltar Farm is 100% grassfed and using NSIP to improve the genetics of their flock.  Can’t wait to pick this guy up and throw some ewes at him.

On our test breeding I bet 75% of the lambs were black with either a spot on their tall or spot on the head exactly like he has.  I was say that is pretty strong set of genes there.  If you were to tell me 4 yrs ago I would have a black katahdin ram I would have laughed.  In fact on my podcast there was an episode I even mentioned being on a farm looking at rams and told the breeder to remove the couple rams that had black on them!  But, here we are….

We plan on collecting this ram later this winter after some much needed rest after breeding season.  Stay tuned!
