Ewe ‘a credit’ to JimJan
JimJan’s long-bodied ewe caught the judge’s eye for its supreme attributes at Wagin Woolorama.
Principal Jim Glover’s high expectations for his fertilelooking ewe paid off when it was awarded the grand champion title for its studiedness and femininity.
Miroui stud’s rival ram impressed judge Michael O’Neill but he said, in the end, the young female was everything and more that could be expected in the breed. “The sheep’s neck extension flows into the shoulders, and there is also plenty of spring in the ribs, which is ideal regarding breeding,” he said.
“Other desirable traits are its height through the pins, structural correctness and the fact that it stands exceptionally well.
“The animal is an absolute credit to the breeder.”
