This is the first time I have ever advertised lambs for sale. It is also the first time that I have had someone around who knows something about Shetlands to give me advice. Garrett Ramsey was here on one of his flying transportation trips to bring me a ewe lamb. While he was here he gave me his opinion on my measly little lamb crop. He was not unhappy with them and said I could probably sell them. Since I have four ewes and two rams, I would be happy to sell one ewe lamb and the two rams. Here they are:
(only three white feet)
The boys are 5 weeks old now, and Garrett thought they would both be scurred. They get their polled gene from their dad who is polled and their flashy appearance from their mom who is katmoget with spots.
If you have any interest in any of these three lambs, let me know. The price will be right since this is my first offering, and I would be thrilled to sell any of them as registered Shetlands.
All my thanks to Garrett Ramsey for his assistance with my itty bitty flock and for his addition to my "breeding program" ----- small as it may be and for selling us Little Beaver, our wonderful black and white Cardigan Welsh corgi.

The whole group ran around for a while and then decided to spend some time at rest in the only shade they have in their yard. Of course the resident cat had to join them.
We are not happy with the heat; neither are all the animals----- cows, sheep and dogs.
