TULIGIRL: NMI 570Z, 708322-H, heterozygous white, horned, twin. Sire: LF-495Y,
"Prince." Dam: LF 413X, "Big Ma." 45% AI, with 19 AI sires in her family tree. The AI
sires with the highest percentage of presence are: Visir, Sjodur, Grimur, with Tuli,
Garpur, Mjaldur, Thettir, Flotti, Hunn, Keli, Pristur, Krappur & several others making
up the rest.
This ewe is INCREDIBLE!!! Never in all my life have I seen ANY ewe, of ANY breed
with the rear leg muscling that even comes close to Tuligirl.
My opinion is that her leg muscling scores a perfect 20!!! (According to the criteria
the Icelanders use to evaluate.)
I visited some of the finest farms in Iceland, and nowhere, on either ewe OR RAM
have I seen muscling such as this! Not in the semen stations, not on the finest
Icelandic farms, not even on the pictures of the Texel rams in the popular sheep
Her chest is the broadest I have ever seen, as well as deep! Her back is long,
exceedingly broad and well muscled, with a perfect #5 eyemuscle shape.
For 2017, I plan to do an inbreeding of Tuligirl with one of her previous ramlambs in
order to dramatically increase the chances of getting a lamb that has all of her best
qualities as well as the best attributes of Green Ears, which, if successful, could
potentially produce a lamb with world class conformation and muscling.
The lambs will be 50% AI, and have an amazing 31 different AI sires in their family
tree, which should certainly have substantially dealt with the inferior allele problem
I describe here...
Some of the AI sires that will be found in the lamb's geneology are: Raftur, Lodi,
Bramli, Visir, Garpur, Hunn, Tuli, Butur, Kjalvar, Svadi, Laekur, Grimur, Foli, Galsi,
Pristur, Flotti, Sekkur, Hnykill, Horvi, and many generations of other exceptional AI
The lambs will be white.
Lambs will likely be born around March 26th.
Triplets born March 26th, and after two weeks, it appears that one of the ramlambs
may indeed be of world class quality...we'll confirm that as we go through the year.
|You may be interested in comparing Tuligirl to the superb ewes at the
Stora Armott farm in Iceland, she is their equal in every way, except
Tuligirl's rear leg muscling is much deeper and thicker.
