On this page we like to give a survey of the rams which were of influence.
If possible we illustrate with available photographs.
In the early nineties A-ram 4030 1289 and flock mate 4066 581 often were each others concurrent for the championship. Both were remakable stud rams.
ram 4513 0200 was bred by our colleague Wim Janssen, out of two exceptional parents: ram 4066 662 and ewe 4030 1129
lambs by 4513 200 which were born in the 4030-flock: this is how he made them, square muscled with super heads
1907 1349: this ram born in 1998 was ahead of his time. He was most impressive because of his length and development. He carried the bloodlines of three leading flocks: Kikkert, Kroon en Verberne.
1851 4013: This van Aken bred ram shows a beautifull upstanding and balance. He's a construction of mainly Verberne and Kikkert bloodlines. He's the father of ram 1907 1700
1907 1700: the eweline of this ram goes back to a well breeding Kroon-sheep. His correct and muscled appearence provided him with the champions title more then once

Ram 4513 444 on his turn is a son of 1907 1700 out of a 3938 3226 mother. He carries the blood of three leading rams who were known for their ability to pass their development to their decendence.
Ram 4030 2982 was the first ARR-ARR ram that was rewarded with an A for general appearance. We used him in his first year and at that time we could'nt guess how influential he would prove to be in the following years. He became the star of the first decennium.
Ram 4030 3309 was a super muscled son by 2982. He signed for the paternity of ram 4030 3532.
For us ram 4030 3532 was THE MONUMENT in the history of our flock. Only the good die young: in only one tupping season he gave us a series of superb ewes: not less then 8 of them recieved an "A" for general appearance, they were unbeatable in the showring.

For the moment ram 1907 2050 is the latest "absolute" star born in our flock. The ram was extremely muscled, trait which he consequently passed to his progeny together with a most beautifull caracter.
