"CATO," JWT 0023A, #690940-H. Moorit, horned, triplet. 30% remains of the AI genetics of his ancestors, with 12 AI Sires in his pedigree. The three AI sires with the greatest presence are Prestur, Ari, and Faldur, but also include Kari, Sponn, Biskup (leaderram), Serkur, Stubbur, Horvi, Morro, Bambi, and Bruni. Cato resided at "Fence Row Farm" in Michigan, and is on this site because he was paired with our new ewe "Cassie," whom we bought as a bred ewe, and I thought you would enjoy seeing his spectacular horns. Cato has a bit of "Leadersheep" influence in his family tree, which likely is the contributing factor as to why this sheep is more slender and not as heavily muscled as the other sheep on my farm, as the leadersheep conformation is taller, more narrow and carries less muscle than the normal icelandic; but one feature that can often be found with a leadersheep is spectacular horning. Cato is not a leadersheep, and does not exibit the tall leadersheep stature, but there seems to be a slight influence nonetheless. For 2016 lambs, Cato was bred to "Cassie", a well built moorit ewe I purchased from Martha Favre of Fence Row Farm. Due to Cato's genetic influence, the lambs may be more slender than the other lambs to be born at "Icelandics North" this spring, and I will need a couple years at least to work more "beef" into their genetics, but I am looking forward to developing some truly spectacular animals from this breeding in the future. NOTE: 12/27/16...No need to "work any beef" into the conformation of the ewelamb "Peace," a ewelamb born out of this breeding. She seems nicely muscled...could eventually have better muscling than her dam, and seems to be the lamb who inherited her sires fantastic horns. I bred her to "Caesar" for a 2017 lambing. His superb conformation and horning, matched with hers should produce some spectacular lambs!
