Patriot: NMI-01M. White, horned, single. Dam FFC-141K,
Sire: "Flotti,"AI ram 98-850, (white.) Patriot is following
in the footsteps of his father, who was by far the best
ramlamb at Rangarvallasysla that year. Thick, broad &
heavily muscled shoulders. Extremely thick neck. Broad
chest, good rump and thick thighs, low & especially broad
build. Strong & straight back with perfect loin eyemuscle
shape. (Score of 5) Third fastest growth rate ever on this
farm. (71 lbs. @ 60 days!) Abundant soft wool. My only
criticism is that his horns are rather close to his face.
Carries black, moorit, mouflon, and spotting. Sold to a
farm in Georgia.
Mjaldursson: BLW-607N, white, twin, beautifully horned.
1/2 AI. Dam: "Red" STS-858G, Sire:Mjaldur,AI Ram
#93-985, (a superb ram well known in Iceland for his
outstanding 9.0 wool score, and for throwing superb
lambs with excellent meat qualities. He has few offspring
in North America, due to the fact that AI'ing in America
was just beginning, and people didn't fully grasp how
superb a ram he was...far ahead of the peers of his time,
and still better than many rams at the AI stations even
today!) This ram has the distinction of being the ONLY
SON OF MJALDUR IN NORTH AMERICA. He is of
medium height and broad in build, with excellent wide and
fully muscled shoulders, thick neck, broad chest, well-
muscled loin with perfect eyemuscle shape, very good
rump, and deep, very thick thigh muscling. His
grandfather, the Iceland AI ram Thettir was given the
incredible score of 19 for rear leg muscling, Iceland's
highest ever to that point! (Since 2001 there have been
four more AI sires to achieve that score.) Calm, tolerant
personality. Heterozygous white. Carries moorit.
Baldor: HMRR-513N, Moorit-grey, horned, triplet. 1/2
AI. Dam:HMRR-19H, horned moorit/grey. Sire:
Bambi, moorit AI ram # 95-829. A very long ram
with great thigh muscling and broad chest. Low to the
ground. Back is less broad but well muscled. Has a
good quantity of wool. Sweet personality, like his sire
Bambi. Carries grey pattern. Unfortunately we had to
put him down sooner than normal due to a number of
genetic deficientcies that took awhile to show up.
Tolkis: NMI-438P Black mouflon. Twin. 1/4 AI,
Flotti. Born 3/24/04. Dam: "Tansy" NMI-02L.
Sire: "Patriot" NMI-01M (described at the top of
the page). Very rapid growth rate (60 lbs @ 60 days
as a twin.) which has continued to this day...213 lbs
at his 1 1/2 year evaluation!!! Tolkis is definitely
following in the footsteps of his sire with his low and
broad structure, heavily muscled back with a 42mm
loin eyemuscle thickness, (ultrasound measured)
and incredible heavy, thick shoulders with an
119.6cm chest circumference. In
the last 4+ years, only 2 rams in Iceland's AI stations
have even come close, Massi (95-841), with a chest
measurement of 116cm, and Haengur (98-848), with a
chest measurement of 118cm. The average chest
measurement for AI Sires in Iceland is 105.2cm.
Tolkis is one incredible ram! (Visit our
He was sold to The Lavender Fleece in Michigan
and sired many excellent lambs!
Wool is dense and very black, with a notable
glossiness and no graying. Carries spotting, and
