Sheep

Enter the Romney

Please enjoy this epic informational video from the American Romney Breeders Association, 1998

I’m very excited to tell you that I’ve added to my little sheep flock. Since my flock is for meat and fiber I’ve chosen to go with the Romney breed for my breeding stock.

If you follow the farm or me on instagram, you’ve seen the original members of my flock, two Scottish Blackface ewes and one ram, two Scottish Blackface/Romney cross ewes and one lamb, and one Romney wether (castrated male).

These registered Romneys will bring larger sheep and a shorter, more lustrous fiber to the herd. The shearing this Spring will be my first foray into fiber and if all goes well, I will be doing custom fiber reservations on a per sheep basis for 2020.
