My husband and I have been raising dorpers for 10 years. We started with half breed ewes and used registered full or pure white rams. Because we are just selling local market lambs I would cross breed for several different traits, including some of the uncovered color/persian markings. This winter we had this AMAZING ram lamb arrive- problem is that we are at maximum inbreeding (we also got a dwarf lamb!) My husband and I are trying to decide if he is something special and we should try to sell him for breeding; or just send him to market with the other lambs.

I can attest that he is absolutely 87% plus white dorper- there is no chance of an accidental breeding from an unknown ram- He is NOT black bellied; his colors are black tan and white.

What say you?

Interesting ram you’ve got there. I started with Dorper cross bred ewes 7 years ago. I got a white Katahdin ram, sometimes I get some interesting colors.

You my try selling him on Craigslist. He’s too pretty to take to auction!
