2010 Wiltshire cross ram lamb

Even though both of his parents are polled and AI sired by polled New Zealand and Australian rams, the first lamb born in 2010 is happily sprouting horns. As a result of our initial use of Wiltshire Horn semen on our base flock we expect a certain percentage of horned offspring out of some of our rams.

Tex - Purebred Wiltshire horn ram lamb

Purchased from Dan Nigh in Harper TX, Tex is a son of the imported Australian ram Wonoka 271/02 and is 3/4 Australian breeding. Guess it goes without saying that we'll be seeing more horns popping up next year.
