Yearling Ram, RRNN. Just as picture shows, this ram is correct everywhere. Great top and tail set, depth of body, feet and legs. Sire is Prairie Rose BlackFoot, and damn is Huepel-VanArkle broodlines. Ram is a young yearling, being born first part of April 2018, so still has a lot of growth left in him. He bred a few ewes last October, and both his ewe lambs are keepers.
