shetland sheep for sale

 

This year’s Shetland lambs are the product of several goals:  to breed for 1) lambs with gray fleece (Magnus, Daal, Sneck) 2) for flashy and possibly caped flecket lambs (Oiseval), and 3) for lambs with a primarily white fleece (Holm).  I had so many wonderful rams with beautiful fleece and wide horns that I couldn’t bear to wether, so I wanted to see what they could do!   The result is a crop of wonderful lambs  with a range of colors, patterns and fleece types.  

 

You may reserve a lamb with a phone call or email, and it will be marked as "Reserved" and kept on hold for seven days to allow your nonrefundable deposit of 1/2 to arrive. The animal will then be listed as “On Deposit.” The balance is due prior to pick-up or delivery of the animal; lambs will be available to go to their new homes in late July/early August.  I give a discount of 10% for 3 - 4 animals; 15% for 5 or more animals. If you should change your mind after making a deposit, that deposit can be applied to another sheep or to a future purchase.

All animals will have their CD/T shots and scrapie tags and will be registered with NASSA.  Those traveling across state lines will also have a veterinary certificate.  In addition, all lambs will be halter-trained.

Trinity Farm maintains a closed flock, and the sheep are free of Scrapie, OPP, CL, and hoofrot.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
