Edstaston Leopard's Den (TG:1100073). Updated: 30/10/2012
Leopards Den was bought from Robert & Jeanette Gregory at the Worcester Premier Sale 2011 for 3,000gns. He is the third highest index ram lamb of 2011, with an index of 500. CT scanning showed him to have the widest eye muscles of all the lambs scanned in 2011 which, coupled with an exceptional eye muscle depth measurement, gave him the highest eye muscle area of the year at 49.92 square cm. His dam also bred the highest eye muscle area lamb in 2010, sired by Leopards Den's grandsire. Leopards Den is the highest performing lamb to date, from Rainbow Hermes bloodlines, being a son of Edstaston Informe (TG:8088). Informe is a son of Rainbow Hermes (XPU:7035) from the superb show ewe, Edstaston Dubai. He was purchased jointly with Peter Scott's Eastbach (WEA) flock.
