Due to life circumstances and changes here on the farm, I am selling my NASSA registered Shetland ewes. We have added meat sheep (Katahdin and Dorper hair sheep) to our farm, and I need to be able to mob graze all of them together without fear of the Katahdin ram getting the Shetlands pregnant. These ewes have been grass and hay-fed, with some sweet feed as an occasional treat.
These pictures (from early April 2019) show them in full fleece. I will be shearing them (late April or early May) before they go to their new home. They will also have a CD/T shot.
Only 2 of them have a scrapies eartag in. I have the tags for all of them, but until now, it was not a priority to tag them. They will be tagged before leaving the farm.
All pertinent details that I can think of are listed here, but I may have forgotten something. If I remember, I will add it to the description. I have not done micron testing for their wool.
These have all been good ewes for me – easy keepers, and thrifty. I did not breed them last fall (they were bred in 2016 and 2017), and their previous offspring and pedigree can be found on the NASSA website. There are no pictures of the 2017 and 2018 lambs on the NASSA site because I’m waiting for them to update the database in May.
If you have questions, please ask. All sales are final. You will receive their registration papers at the time of pickup for transferring the registration to your name.
I am located in southwest Ohio near Pleasant Hill, zip 45359.
If you are interested in several of the ewes, I will offer a discount – 10% for 3-4 animals, 15% for 5+. I will also trade for wethers, or weaned ram lambs that can be wethered. Let’s talk!
