WVF 4-279 “Mabel”

WVF 4-279 “Mabel”

Easily the best ewe in this easy keeping line, Mabel traces 5 generations of lineage (and improvement) back to a foundation ewe (NEK 3130) from the Northeast Katahdin Hair Sheep Project.  Mabel, as well as her dam, perform especially well on pasture, fleshing out easily after lactation and affording parasite resistance to their lambs.  She was a standout as a lamb and that continues to this day.  Her flat coat and thick body type add to her solid suite of performance data (EBVs).  Her daughter (WVF 8-687) was our favorite consignment to the 2018 KHSI National Katahdin Sale…. another one that got away.
