Lambing in April; weaning in July
All 2018 ewe lambs are spoken for. If anyone is looking for a very sweet pet, we have a wether available whose mom lost her milk supply due to an infection when he and his twin sister were 10 days old. She recovered after a few shots of Penicillin, but her babies are now bottle lambs.
Wethers will be sold unregistered unless the buyer wants papers; registered, they are $150.
Several options are available locally for custom butchering; we are able to arrange this on request.
*Any rams not spoken for by buyers will be wethered within the first few weeks after birth.
All our breeding stock is registered. We have only done codon testing for scrapie resistance on some of our ewes, but all our lambs are sired by RR (scrapie resistant) rams.
Snowball’s rams: Yes – she had triplets 2 years in a row! (Wethering has now been done. One of these guys will be sold as a flock sire; the other two were wethered.)
