Will be getting my Cal Reds in September and I have pictures and Pedigrees of them already. Am getting a gorgeous registered Ram and 3 terrific ewe lambs. All lambs were born in Feb and March, but it will be a little too hot to transport from New Mexico until fall. One of the ewe lambs was born at an amazing 13 lbs. She was a single born to a yearling first time mom, who had her with no assistance and has done a super job so far. Pictures will be available later, but you can see some of them at http://www.nmredsheep.meridian1.net/. California Reds are true breeding crosses between Black Belly Barbado and Tunis sheep. A great thing about them is that the rams are very heat tolerant and will breed all year round. That can give you 3 lambings every 2 years. Have thought about getting a Texel ewe and cross breeding to make Tex-Reds. In Texas almost anything with Tex in the name is in demand. Texel are a meat breed from the Texel Islands and have the largest loin eye of any breed of sheep.
