Claudius was born in 2019 and purchased by myself directly from the breeder as a ram lamb to compliment the Fawn Katmoget genetics within my flock. He comes from a long line of Fawn Katmoget in his pedigree. He has only thrown Fawn Katmoget marked progeny in the three years I have used him as my primary F/K stock sire. He would be ideal for anyone wanting to produce this colour whole body marking.

He has an extremely fine, crimped fleece with approximately a 5” staple which as I can personally testify, hand spins beautifully. He has passed this excellent fleece quality onto all his lambs to date including Best Ewe and County Reserve Champion in 2022

Claudius has good conformation. He has an amazing, gentle temperament when handled. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 UK restrictions in 2020/21, I was unable to take him on the showing circuit, but feel sure that, like his full brother and sire, he would have been very successful in the show ring as were, on the few occasions I was able to show, his offspring.

This lovely, ‘kind natured gentleman’ of a ram has produced excellent stock within my SSS registered Down Acres flock
