2022 Ram Lambs, etc.
Well, we have several sheep that have gone to their new homes, but still have a few ram lambs and some select grown rams left including a brown ram, some badgers, and also some stunning black, and white rams. We think that some of these are particularly nice for potential breeding stock. (All our flock has been tested Johnnes and OPP free. Anything new coming in is always quarantined and tested before introducing to the rest of the flock.)
SOLD - The first ram is Arthur FBA# yet to be determined (we'll send off for registration when we have a confirmed sale.) His parents are (FBA #30324 and #30347). Born 1-12-22. Black with a very small white spot on forehead only. Growthy and was a triplet birth. Nice and consistent fleece as well!
Our next ram lamb is Sergeant FBA# 33020. He is a lovely black ram born 1-28-22 from a twin birth. He stood beautifully from the very beginning and was an eye-catcher. A very tight and nice fleece on this lamb. A very sweet fella too!
SOLD - This next ram stands nicely. We've named him Legacy FBA#33015 as he is from a ewe who had quads at almost ten years old! (We will be keeping all of her ewe lambs.) Comes from really nice lines with a nice fleece. All of our brown lambs have grown seeming to keep with a nice type. DOB 1-30-22.
SOLD - FBA# 33019 Cloud is our only black based grey badger ram lamb left. He is from a triplet birth and was born 1-22-22. Love his coloring and nice fleece. A little standoffish, but I do not see this as a disadvantage in a ram.
Jasper FBA# 33022 is from a twin birth born 2-16-22. Black HST pattern (only a bit of white on forehead.) Recently weaned. Nice fleece.
We also always have white ram lambs born this spring who start at a lower price for anyone who is interested. Can be registered with their own FBA#s. Here is a sampling:
SOLD Proven adult ram Jaimie FBA# 31126 born 2-5-20 has sired some lovelies for us this year. We just don't need his line repeated here as we already carry these genetics. Triplet birth and a lovely dark badger color. Great fleece if you love locks!
SOLD Finnegan FBA# 32270 is freckled with badger pattern. He was born 2-1-21 and is a yearling. Very friendly and nice fleece.
SOLD Checkers FBA# 32274 is also freckled with badger pattern. Born 2-20-21 and is a yearling despite his lamb picture underneath. A cutie and nice manners to boot.
Thank ewe for looking!

Hi Lawrence! Thanks for getting in touch. I do believe that Finnsheep are not as suitable for FL as some other breeds might be. I would suggest Gulf Coast Native sheep who have very nice wool and temperaments and are good milkers as I hear it. I think you are being very wise to look for what does best in your area first!

Hello, I used to raise Finns in New Jersey at Springfields Farm. Circumstance forced me to sell off and move to NC. I miss my Finns dearly. I currently have a very small premature goat that is full grown but needs a companion. She is unable to be with full grown goats. I am interested in getting a RAM and or EWE to restart my passion for Finns and provide a companion for my goat. Do you have any that fit my needs. I was struck by the photo of Checkers FBA# 32274. What do you charge for your sheep? Regards, Linda

Hi Linda! I'd be happy to help you... Checkers is still here and in fact we have several older ewes and young lambs that we have decided to make available at this point. Maybe even getting a bred ewe would be an option with an unrelated ram? Let's e-mail! firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!!!

Would finnsheep be suitable for Kansas? I’m wanting to get them mainly for fiber but perhaps for meat as well thanks

Hi Sophia. Yes, there are breeders in the mid west and further that do very well with Finns. They have lovely fiber and are good for meat as well if this is what you chose to do. :)

Do you have any ram lambs still available? I'm starting a flock in Ohio and would like a Finn ram.

Hi Robert. We do still have a few, though our best have been sold at this point. Do e-mail in the contacts link if interested and thank you for reaching out!

I am just trying to get in contact for getting reserving spring lambs. I am trying to get some brown into my flock.
