2018 Lamblist
Dierdre and Charolais: Incredible heavy muscling potential. These two individuals were
specifically developed and then bred together for the purpose of bringing forth lambs that
should be among the best available anywhere in the world of this breed. In the background of
the lambs that result from this breeding are
8 of the most muscular Icelandic rams to be found
in Iceland's entire history!
The lambs will be 52% AI, and have an incredible 44 different AI sires in their geneology!!
(Why does this contribute to high quality?
Blettur, Dropi and Kviekur have the greatest presence, along with Rektor, Morro, Molur, Stubbur, Udi,
Grimur, Dreitill, Kari,
Raftur, Visir, Mjaldur, Grani, Lodi, Sekkur, Bramli, Aboti, Gari, Laekur,
Hunn, Keli, Pristur, Foli, Galsi, Garpur, and many others.  
Note that Charolais himself carries the genetics of what the Icelanders consider as four of the
best rams in Iceland's history: Garpur, Laekur, Raftur, and Visir, and a clue to his
muscle-making potential is to be seen in the muscling of his sire, ANGUS, whose back
muscling of 40mm at only
8 months of age was greater than the calculated average of
Iceland's finest 18 month old rams chosen for AI service for the purpose of improving
Iceland's national flock.
(See Angus' back muscling!)
Unfortunately Angus' son Charolais died in a freak accident. I took that opportunity to
physically measure Charolais' back muscling and (at 9 1/2 months old)
his loin eyemuscling
was an astounding 51mm!!!
This is an unheard of measurement!! (The normal average for
Iceland's finest MATURE rams is only 36mm, and
that is at 18 months!!)  The lambs out of
Charolais and Dierdre are likely to be incredible and among the best in the world of this breed!

See Charolais' backmuscling.
May 9th, an 8 Lb. single heterozygous white ram was born, and at this point (May 30th), it appears
that he will not disappoint as he is growing out very well. He will definitely be well muscled, well
proportioned, and is growing like a weed!
His leg muscling seems to be developing especially
well! (Compare Caesar II to his world-class sire Charolais in the pictures below.)

      The sire of Caesar II (Charolais) are the two pictures on the right at three weeks of age.
Caesar II at four weeks is seen in the two pictures on the left. The differences between the
two are 1.) Caesar II's neck is slightly longer and not as thick. 2.) The back muscling of
Caesar II is not quite as thick, but: 3.) Caesar II has the more perfect (ideal) body length, and
4.) seems just as broad overall, though possibly
slightly (5%?) less broad in the hips/rump.
Remember that Charolais' back muscling is possibly the thickest the world has ever seen out
of this breed, so for his son Caesar II to have muscling less thick doesn't mean he is going to
merely be "normal." It is possible he may also (like is sire Charolais and his grand-sire Angus)
have top notch/world class muscling exceeding the best of the best of the Icelandic breed
available on the home soil of Iceland, or anywhere else in the world for that matter!!
      Just a note: Now, in early October at 5 months of age, Caesar II is showing much thicker
back muscling than expected, as well as an ASTOUNDING degree of leanness!! (Less than the
ideal of 2mm!!)

Galadriel and Sir Galahad:
Potential for conformational perfection! 48% AI with the bloodlines of
37 different AI sires
in their genetics! The diverse group of AI sires brought together with this breeding have
one thing in common, near perfection in conformational proportions and thick heavy
Raftur, Haengur, Kani, Visir and Thettir have the greatest presence, with others
such as Laekur, Grani, Garpur, Vinur, Svadi, Deli, Horvi, Valur, Sekkur, Aboti, Lodi, Gari,
Peli, Naggur, Mjaldur, Stubbur, Dropi, Nokkvi, Keli, Flotti, Butur, Ari, Kokkur, Hnykkur,  
Hunn, Moli, Heli, Hnykill, and Tuli as well as others combine their superb genetics to
create among the world's finest examples of this breed. Birth date was June 9th.
6/9/18, twin white rams born, one died at birth. The lamb that survived is already showing
promise of high quality, with ideal length, breadth, and promise of being well muscled.
Price to be determined after he is evaluated for quality.
Perkie and Sir Galahad:
Unusual balance of excellence in muscling and conformation in both of these lambs.
The lambs that result from this breeding will be 46% AI, and have
41 different AI
in their background, including: Garpur, Hunn, Tuli, Visir, Raftur, Lodi, Bramli,
Sekkur, Pristur, Foli, Galsi, Laekur, Foli, Flotti, Butur,  Prudur (#94-834), Flotti, Moli
(93-986), Aboti, Gari and
many others which will lend their genetic excellence to this
breeding. Why is many AI sires an advantage?
The lambs are likely to be heterozygous white, carrying black.
Unfortunately no pregnancy resulted from this pairing.
Peace and Prudy:
Lambs will be 50% AI with 27 AI sires. Pruder, Flotti, Bessi, Prestur, &
Morro having the highest percentages. Both sire and dam are well muscled
and the genetics are somewhat scarce and not closely related to most
other lines.
Peace's conformation and bone structure are turning out even better than
appeared when evaluated this past fall. Her characteristics were excellent
and very acceptable then, but are turning out to be better even than
anticipated. These lambs are expected to be particularly excellent.
Hopefully the lamb's horns will also be a reflection of the superb genetics
in their background.
(See their grand-sire's horns)
Twins born May 23th. One white ewe lamb and one black-grey ram lamb.
Both seem to have calm, pleasant personalities like Mom, and are formed
well. Though it is too early at this point to guess at just how rugged they
will be, it is already obvious that these two are above average in muscling
and the excellence of their conformations, with very rapid growth!
Final price will be determined after an evaluation of quality is completed.
Peace/Prudy lambs at four days of age.
(White) Ewe lamb $800. (reserved)
(Black) Ramlamb $600.
Galadriel Son (SPOT) at 2 days
Galadriel ram (SPOT) at 10 days.
Ram lamb $850.
