Small flock in need of a new home

If you keep other animals for productive purposes, whether for meat, wool or bi-products, here's the area to chat. I mean, you do realise chickens are the gateway drug to other animals, don't you?

Small flock in need of a new home

Postby crazypianolady » 16 Jan 2013, 09:01

Details taken from Ravelry:-




''The flock is NOT FOR SALE BUT FREE to anyone who can offer them the home they deserve.

This situation is not of their doing but shepherds position has changed drastically so she is no longer able to keep this ‘pet flock’.

All the flock have very fine fleeces, two are pedigree Shetland sheep, most are at least 2/3rds Shetland with a strand of Blue faced Leicester or Texel. The colours range from black through brown, grey to fawn.

Flock consists of

2 pedigree Shetland : Jackie small black, Juliet 1 grey Katmugot, both born 2003
3 Shetland crosses 6 yrs old, Jenny BF Leics x Shetland
Chrissie Texel x Shetland 6yrs * Ella BF Leics X Shetland 6yrs *

Both these ewes had twin lambs in 2011 sired by a Katmugot ram producing

2 ewes:- 1 black medium sized, 1 grey small
2 wethers:- 1 black medium sized, 1 grey large

All paperwork is in order, they were professionally hand sheared last year and all regular injections etc have been administered.

The flock have been kept for conservation grazing and their fleeces in the North Tyne valley / Belligham area, so someone in Northumberland or the borders might find this easiest.

We are looking to find a similar home for them where they can be together and be well looked after and cared for. So, if you are not interested but know someone who might be please let them know.

If you want more details or some pictures of the flock please PM me as the shepherd is not attached to her computer but will happily talk to you on a phone.''
