Lambing in April; weaning in July
We have a list going for 2019 lambs! If you would like to be on it, let Laura know. email@example.com or 402-910-5761
Wethers will be sold unregistered unless the buyer wants papers; registered, they are $150.
*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.
One more 2018 ewe lamb is up for sale and ready to go! She was a late surprise, born July 2 to Wooly, an 8 year old ewe. Our daughter named her Hoshiko, “Pretty Star” in Japanese.
We are offering a couple of mature ewes again this year to be sold as breeding pairs or a trio with unrelated ram lamb(s). These are proven mothers who lambed easily and have done a great job with their babies. Both NABSSAR registered.
This is Iris, a two year old. Her first lambs were born in 2017, beautiful twin ewes. $400, with purchase of 2019 ram lamb.
Here is Lilac, Iris’ twin. Her picture below with the breeding stock shows her in full fleece. She had a nice ewe lamb in April 2017. $400, with purchase of a 2019 ram lamb.
Here are pictures and information about our ram and ewes:
