Soay Rams for Sale

Last year we lost the gender lottery on lambs (3 ewes, 8 rams) and this year our first four lambs were rams, so we find ourselves with an excess of rams, both proven flock sires and yearlings ready to breed this fall. We would like to be your source of a new flocksire or two, and we will work with you to make it economically feasible if you need to have the ram(s) shipped to you. Please contact us if you are interested in any of these handsome authentic Soay rams, all of whom are registered with the RBST.

PROVEN FLOCK SIRES READY TO BREED AGAIN

SALTMARSH YATELEY

Born in 2016, Yateley sired two sets of twins and a single for us last week. The son of Upton (Preston x Findlater) and Wheatley (Chadderton x Dora), Yateley will always be easy to spot in your pastures.

SALTMARSH WIDLEY

Also born in 2016 and the father of one set of light phase twins (so far), Widley (Sidley x Dora) is a mixture of locally-grown authentic Soay sheep and the addition of new genetics by way of AI; his grandsire lived in Wales.

YEARLING RAMS EAGER TO BREED FOR YOU

SALTMARAH YARBURGH

The 2017 son of Emmett and Willen, Yarburgh may eventually sport Emmett’s glorious mane. Yarburgh has the classic Soay “mouflon” coat and appearance.

Yarburgh’s horns both curl and clear nicely

SALTMARSH EPWORTH

2017 ram Epworth is a striking example of the result of bringing in new genes via artificial insemination a few years ago. He was born pitch black and, as seems to be typical for these AI descendants, his coat has lightened somewhat while his head and legs remain black. His father Sheffield had the same coat, while his mother Cley remained almost black even as an adult.

SALTMARSH LINWOOD

Linwood, also a 2017 ram, has the same father as Epworth, and his mother Darby was one of our first black British Soay.

Linwood’s long, slightly curved horns are of medium width

SALTMARSH ROTHWELL

Last but not least is 2017 ram Rothwell, with wide horns and classic Soay looks. He may throw lambs that are unusually dark (via his sire, Hastings) or that have unusually wide graceful horns (by way of his dam, Pollicott).

Saltmarsh Rottweil
OR119-764

Rothwell’s horns clear well and may well eventually curve back out
