Sheep

Occasionally pairs (ewes and lambs), bred ewes, or yearlings are offered for sale.

Approximately one-half of the herd is St. Croix crossed with the Corriedale. This is a great cross, introducing hybrid vigor and all the best qualities of both breeds. The St. Croix have proven to be exceptional dams for me. They lamb first, and easily. Most of the lambs are outstanding. I appreciate the clean faces, necks, legs and bellies of these ewes. Some of the ¾ ewes shed most of their wool/hair, but still are sheared with the herd. The St. Croix has also crossed beautifully with the Icelandic. Many of these lambs are exquisite.

The Corriedale breed is well known for its dual purpose – meat and wool. For me they have also been exceptionally easy and quiet to handle. As a woman I appreciate their docile personality and medium size.

The Navajo crosses have also made a significant impact on my herd. There are many blacks and pintos with this blood. They have a soft lovely fleece with good crimp. Crossed with the St. Croix, they make an elegant ewe.

The Icelandic have added “zing” to my herd. My most beautiful yearling was a very elegant Icelandic/Corriedale cross that looks purebred with an exceptional fleece. Crossed with the St. Croix they have produced my most exotic ewes. Freda is the purebred ewe on the home page and I think she is beautiful!
