I still need to cut back on my sheep numbers here. I'd like to breed for solid-sided polled gulmoget Shetlands, so I will retain all twelve of my Shetlands. And I can't keep up with the demand for white BFL fleece, so the BFLs will be staying too.
Unfortunately, I just don't have pasture here to keep 30 sheep year round.
That means the Shetland mules will be the ones to go. As much as I hate to let them go, I certainly don't want to send them the sales barn as culls.
They are priced at $100 each, after breeding season exposure to an Ile de France/Dorest cross ram, they will be priced at $125 each. There are three two-year-olds and three one-year-olds.
All are white and all are friendly with fabulously crimpy fleece.
Beautiful girls with good lambing histories. Two of the yearlings have not lambed.
I am willing to be creative and would consider giving them to a good home in return for 50% of their 2010 lamb crop (ram lambs only) and 50% of their 2010 fleeces.
Our flock is healthy, and these girls are up to date on hoof trimming, and vaccinations (CDT). They can be wormed prior to leaving the farm. Let me know if you're interested.
Also, we have a natural colored BFL ram lamb for sale ($200) and three crossbred BFL/Shetland beautiful friendly ewe lambs ($100).
