shetland sheep for sale

 

This year’s Shetland lambs are the product of my goal to breed for flashy lambs.  Vagaries of the weather and scheduling resulted in only one breeding group - with Holm who has a fleece that spins like butter. And what a result!  I also retained a number of outstanding ram lambs last year - and these are offered now as yearling rams.

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!
