Lambing 2014 has begun

 So here come the adventures of lambing 2014!  We used our Finn rams exclusively this year, except on the Cotswolds, which are bred to a friend's Cotswold ram. There are several combinations that I am looking forward to seeing, among them the Finn Border crosses, and the 1/2 Finn shetland crossed back to our new Finn ram. If you see a lamb you are interested in please feel free to contact us:

3/5 Finn Border Leicester Cross SINGLE, RAM lamb. Too bad he was still born, a gorgeous jet black ram lamb.
3/6 Finn Border Leicester Cross TWINS RAM, EWE. Both white, both will be available, may be shown.
3/7 Cotswold  SINGLE RAM white, will be available after show season.

New developments/updates

We have started a Facebook page and will be posting updates there more regularly than here. Check it out and follow along at

We have a lovely litter of French Angora kits in wild colors that will be available later this spring. They are quite the lively little bunch!

We started lambing this morning as well. Unfortunately, it was a first time ewe who had a stillborn. Lovely jet black ram lamb with a white star on his face, who would have been truly stunning had he lived.

 Till next time, keep it sheepy!
