Lowerye Dynamite.                                        updated: 03/06/2008


Lowerye Dynamite (ZVY 3018) was the highest index son of sire reference ram Lowerye Charlie (ZVY 2019) born in 2003. He is a thickset, stocky ram with an incredibly masculine head and a good gigot. He scanned with an eye muscle of 34.7mm at a weight of 69kg and was selected to send to Edinburgh for CT scanning where his muscularity was highlighted.

    Sire: Lowerye Charlie (ZVY2019) was the highest index son of Arjane Master Mac (ZRF 8004) born in the sire reference scheme in 2002. He is out of a daughter of Foulrice Lionheart (DG 5137) that traces back to DJ 8001, Supreme Champion at the 3 Counties Show in 1989 and the dam of Belbroughton Grandmaster (DJ 1001). Charlie is a long, tall ram with a good loin, a masculine head and a tremendous head carriage. He was first prize ram lamb at Moreton-in-Marsh Show as a ram lamb and was the first choice reference ram and winner of the Rutland Trophy at our selection day in 2002. He was subsequently used as a reference ram by most flocks in the scheme in 2003.

    Dam: ZVY 8064 is a daughter of Lowerye Brutus (ZVY 6100) who was the highest index son of reference ram Netherallan Envoy (KS 4149) and was himself selected as a reference ram in 1996. She is out of a daughter of another reference ram, Netherallan Majestic (KS 1068), from our most successful female family. That family traces back to FX 1023, a ewe lamb sold by the Cairnhill flock for 1,450 gns at the Premier Sale 1991.
