We specialize in Shetland Sheep with a spotted color pattern, while still breeding for all of the other breed standards and characteristics that Shetland Sheep are known for, including their small size frame, great fleece quality and their hardy nature. Our registered herd is small, but we are building strong genetics into the herd for the future.
We also send our fleece to Texas A&M for quality and strength testing. This also helps us for phenotype selection in our genetic program. Our Shetland Sheep are the perfect size for handling, making shearing easy every spring. We also take the time to halter break our sheep and spend plenty of extra time with them when they are younger to prevent them from becoming flighty. All of our sheep are calm and easy to handle. And just like the Scottish Highland Cattle, our sheep have a favorite snack as well - animal crackers. Is it wrong to feed animal crackers to animals? Our sheep don't think so, they love the sweet little snacks.
Visit Maks at the Minnesota Zoo. Maks was our flock ram in 2010, but we sold him to the Minnesota Zoo because their ram passed away after 10 years. Be sure to go see Maks and post pictures of him to our Facebook page.
Shetland Sheep Shows attended: Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival, Michigan Fiber Festival, and the Indiana State Fair.
Congratulations to the Fulks Family who purchased Wynn from us and then showed her at the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville, KY. Wynn won the Best Fleece on Hoof at the 2013 NAILE Shetland show.
