Romonov Sheep
I'm sending along a photo of a Romonov ewe and the 6 lambs she recently gave birth to. There are only a few Romonov sheep in North America. The breed originated in Russia and was brought over by the Canadian government for experimental purposes. The breed is known for multiple births, which they have most of the time. Average lambing rate is about 2.9 lambs. They are very prolific because they breed year around as compared to the seasonal breeding of most breeds. They are good mothers - all six of the lambs pictured are doing well. Crossbred lambs are born very easily and are up sucking in just a few minutes. One characteristic of the breed is that they have short tails.
We have a limited amount of breeding stock available.
