Now and Later

                        The ram above is sold, the ram below is available later, end of November.
The ram below is for sale.  He is a big boy and I am afraid of putting the ram lambs in with him.  So I really need to have him sold by weaning time.

 Also available now:
Adult ewes

 Yearling ewes:
 Ram lambs:

 Yearling ewe (I will keep one or the other (shown previously) of Champ's daughters, don't need both).

 Ewe lambs:

I decided I can't afford to be sentimental.  So that is why a few more ewe lambs are shown here for sale.  The only ewe lambs not for sale are Silvermist's grey kat and Pearl's grey flecket.  I wanted a soft grey lamb from Neville to keep and those two are the ones I narrowed it down to.  I do love my moorits from Neville but my yearling from him is my absolute favorite so to keep another is just a duplicate.  I am really trying not to keep any duplicates.  I am sworn in July 2nd and I have a feeling that I will be very stretched for time as result.  So, I will offer a post election sale on mulitple purchases of adult sheep that will be picked up by July 1st.  Inquire for more details.

Letting go of Keepers

It is time.  I like them all.  At this point they are all keepers.  I just have to be strict with myself and try to let go to get to my target number.  I did get elected to the local school board so I expect the next year to 3 years to be particularly busy.  All rams are available for sale.  I need few to stay until November to cover the flock for this breeding season, but as of Thanksgiving they are good to go to a new home.  I also banded all the black rams except for one, as well as banded one grey and a katmoget.  So some lovely fiber wethers/pets are available.  I picked the rams with the best looking horns, fleece, conformation, and unique colors/markings to keep as rams.  Adult and yearling ewes are still available.  One yearling ram black and white yearling ram, if not spoken for in the next two weeks will be sent for meat.  One half polled fawn gulmoget ram that needs to stay until November as well but will be availble after that.  In terms of ewe lambs I have two black ewe lambs and one moorit ewe lamb that I have decided to let go as well.  All lambs this year are by Swiftriver Neville, he is 50% UK gentics as he is the product of AI.  So some really great genetics if you are looking to start a flock or add new lines to your existing flock.
 Can Too Sky her moorit and white ram and black wether all for sale.
 The moorit and white  above, and modifed black (I think emsket. Not black to the skin anywhere and no Ag in his lines) gully below available the end of November.  The gully's twin is also a wether.

 Mapleton Peanut and her moorit ewe lamb and black ram lamb are all for sale.

 I hate to do it but I would be willing to part with Mapleton Hope to the right home.  I am keeping her moorit ewe lamb. Her black ewe lamb is sold.
 Opal's yearling daugher has been on and off my sales list forever.  Again for the right home, I will let her go.  Love her stance!  She is very, very soft.  May carry the modifier and may carry polled.
 Marshmello's twins got to stay rams.  The are grey but they are AWESOME!  Both are for sale.
 There are lots more for sale.  I will try to get more photos later.  Had a lot of rain lately, not great for photos but great for growing pastures.  I will also update you on who has sold already. There are 8 leaving in the next few weeks.
