Ewes 

 

We breed for ewes that have a good framework, straight legs, large udders, and the body capacity to carry large litters of lambs.  We have found that these ewes can cross well with any breed, or produce excellent purebreds.   Check out the Hughes Ewes page to see pictures of the wool so you can get the true color of these ewes - the grays especially tend to sun-fade to brown. 

 

We lost Meeka this year.  For those of you who wanted one of her lambs, check out her daughters - 9-62 and 11-347, granddaughter 12-014 or animals sired by her son Casanova.

Here are our ewes, complete with lambing records. 

 

 

Do you want to know the age of our ewes?  That's simple - the first digit of their number is the last digit of the year they were born. 

 

For ewes and lambs born starting in the year 2010, the first two digits will denote the year born.

 

 

(This only works with the 3L numbers.)
