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!

 

Photos  will continue to be updated as the lambs grow up.  New pictures will be coming soon.  The lambs will soon be on the second rotation of the pasture, where the grass is not so tall that I can't find them!
