My wife and I started our Dorset Flock in 1970. Had National Champion Ram in Ohio in 1981. Took sheep to Ohio Dorset Sale, Black and White in Oklahoma, Mid-West Stud Ram Sale in Sedalia, Missouri and Purple Circle Sale in California. We showed at all the major fairs in California. A couple of years ago we got out of the framed sheep and now are in the registered wether Dorset and speck wethers business.
This is "Vance Jr." at 60 days old. We really like his muscling and he has continued to look good as he has gotten older. We plan to use him in fall 2014.
We brought his mother in Heisdorffer's on-line sale November 4, 2013, and she had twins (a ewe and this ram). Sired by "Vance" and out of Heisdorffer P675319 ewe, who's sire is Huntrod and dam is Hurliman.
This is the twin sister to "Vance Jr." on the move in January in sunny Northern California.
Our ranch is in the heart of Sonoma County wine country ~ come visit us and I will take you on a tour of wine country and the San Francisco Bay Area!
