We have sold our farm due to issues with the health of close family members. As you can probably tell, having the lives of a flock of sheep in your hands is a full-time responsibility. It’s impossible to keep both your livestock and family members healthy and safe without a lot of help, which we don’t have. I will always be a shepherd at heart. Caring for sheep changed me fundamentally as a person, and I am very thankful for this experience. This site will stay up as an educational resource for other shepherds and for those interested in the wonderful world of Southdown sheep (and Dorpers too – we really enjoyed them and would have purchased more had we stayed in the business).

Oh, hey, one of these is NOT a Southdown lamb! Spring lambs are due during the month of March, 2016. We will want to sell breeding-quality ewe lambs, show-quality wethers and ewe lambs, and of course we will have lambs available for custom processing. Stay tuned for more baby pics and news!
Here are the ewe lambs we have selected as breeding stock. We have one left. These pictures were taken at 10-13 weeks old. They are really muddy because during their entire lives, it rained pretty much every day. The good news is, if we have not gotten footrot yet, we probably never will! Also, no pneumonia. These are strong little girls! Please excuse the MUD.
