"Peace" NMI-865D, (CLRC # 727753) Moorit Grey, Twin. Dam: Cassie, FAV 7B. Sire: Cato. JWT-23A. 32% of the AI genetics remain of the 22 different AI sires that are in her background. Prestur and Morro are the AI sires with the greatest "presence" in her family tree. See her pedigree here. Her geneology also contains a great number of rare and unusual AI sires such as: Austri, Ari, Bruni, Biskup, Fengur, Faldur, Heli, Horvi, Mjaldur, Kari, Stakkur, & Sveppur, as well many others. With such a number of AI sires in her background, if bred to a broad and muscular ram you could expect a pretty good level of muscling and consistency in the conformations of her lambs. She has inherited a calm personality, soft wool, and exceptional horning genetics from many of her AI ancestors. Her bone structure as a two year old is as broad as my best mature ewes. Her hips, chest, loin, and shoulders are all very broad and very well muscled, rating as high as the best ewes on the best farms of Iceland. Her measurements at 5 months of age were so good in fact, she rated up with the measurement average of most of Iceland's AI Sires when they were measured as ramlambs. (In Iceland, ramlambs are typically measured at 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 months of age.) For 2018, I bred her to "Prudy" whose measurements, even at this point as a ramlamb, are exceptional, and of course, if her lambs inherit the horning genetics of Peace's sire Cato, the resulting lambs could be quite spectacular! This pairing brings together 27 completely different AI sires that will be in their background!! Not all of them would have been the "muscle men" of their day, but nonetheless, to be selected as an AI sire means that animal had something to make it desirable for use by the semen stations of Iceland to enhance the national flock. Hence, whether her lambs showed exceptional muscling or not, the huge amount of excellent genetics from so many of Iceland's best animals all exerting their influence on her DNA should make for some lambs with superbly balanced conformations!! We'll see! (Note: Her 2018's lambs do indeed look very good!) Why is many AI sires a very good thing? Click to read this article!
