My Ram is “Famous”

Last year I donated my registered purebred Clun Forest ram, Royal Blue (called “Royal”) to the SVF Foundation in Newport, Rhode Island. This foundation safeguards the genetics of heritage breeds. Clun Forest sheep are not common and the Foundation was happy to send a truck and two men from Rhode Island to pick him up.

Yesterday I received an email alert to a story in the Newport newspaper. On reading the article I was pleased to come across a passing mention of my boy Royal.

Apparently now that Royal’s semen has been collected, he will be sold to another shepherd. I’m glad to think I’ve contributed in a small way to preserving a rare breed.
