This ram was purchased in the summer of 2003 from Nancy Case. Roberto is RR at codon 171, has hard black hooves, and possesses good maternal traits. This is one of the foundation sires of my flock.
My friend, Steve Bull, bought this ram in 2004 from John Stromquist. Steve was nice enough to let me borrow him to breed with select ewes. This guy is QR codon 171, his coat sheds slick every spring, and he is one of the highest proven maternal trait leaders in the Katahdin breed.
