Ewe ‘a credit’ to JimJan

Countryman - - WAGIN WOOLORAMA -

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.”
