Sheep for sale
PS23 Drummond, a 3 year old musket (carries solid moorit), F1 Brent is available for $150. I have several of his daughters (as well as some grand daughters) that I am retaining. Drummond has a long silky type fleece. (See below-His dam's adult fleece very similar to his won reserved Champion at two shows under two different judges.)Drummond is not aggressive and respects people, however he does not respect fences during breeding time. That problem is solved by putting a ram shield on. (I do have extra ram shields and can can throw one in.) He does respect electric fences.
PS23 Campbell, a 4 year old fawn katmoget F1 Jericho will be available in mid Nov. (after I use him one more time) for $200. I do have several of his daughters that I am keeping as well as some future lambs! Campbell is a very respectful ram. Campbell is a small framed ram-probably 85#.
Campbell's fleece (see below) is very fine and very crimpy. His fleece is silky and is 4 1/2-5 in. long.Campbell's back legs hock in very slightly, but most of his lambs have great conformation. (One of his ram lambs won second place at Michigan Fiber Fest.)
"Cheviot" the Reg. North Country Cheviot ram is for sale $150. He is a great crossing sire for small breeds (Shetland, Finn, Icelandic, Jacob etc.) His lambs are thrifty at birth and grew well.
Shetland ram lambs that will be for sale pending on how their fleeces, horns, etc turn out are:
White with a black front leg(Sabbath Farm Silvia X PS23 Fairlight) F2 Jings, F4 Holly/Greyling. This ram is the best looking ram lamb this year-He has and absolutely perfect tail, great conformation and a very soft, crimpy fleece.
Grey gulmoget/katmoget (PS23 Edelwiess x SheltringPines Justinian) F2 Dillon, F3 Brent, F4 Jericho/Skeld. This ram lamb also carries brown. His fleeces looks like it will be long, fine and silky.
Triplet rams-2 Katmoget (1 grey and 1 fawn) and 1 musket- (Sabbath Farm Fonteyn x PS23 Drummond) F2 Brent, F3 Holly/Greyling. All three have long and silky fleeces so far. (Two will be for sale and I will probably keep one.)
Grey probably carries solid black (PS23 Easterllily x SheltringPines Justinian) F2 Bent, F3 Skeld. Will probably be a half poll (could be a full poll based on genetics.) His fleece will be either long, fine and silky or crimpy and fine.
All ram lambs are sold with horn insurance and a fertility guarantee.
I will also have a few Shetland ewe lambs for sale, but haven't even really looked at the ewe lambs yet so don't know which ones (as I have been busy.)
