Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

Ringo & Shane




Handsome wether's looking for a good home! These two boys are the only two wether's I have left this year.






First we have Ringo--lovely, friendly Ringo. This boy is very striking. He was born with quite a bit of head markings and flecket markings. He is grey so will gradually fade to a medium grey as he gets older. I believe he will keep some of his facial markings though. This guy really catches your eye out in the pasture. His fleece is gorgeous, with remarkable crimp and is very soft. He is quite friendly and will come up for a good scratch. He would very much enjoy being a fiber pet for someone. I know the second picture isn't very good, but it shows some of the lovely variegated pattern this first lamb's fleece will have.



Next is Shane. Shane is a handsome little boy who is solid black. His fleece is intermediate soft, and will likely develop iset fibers as he ages. He is not wild, but not real friendly either. That will likely change once he is weaned from his mother and is placed in a new home.


It would be nice if these boys can stay together, however they can be sold separately. Wether's make wonderful fiber pets, if you have an interest in the fiber aspect and not in breeding sheep. They are friendly, tail wagging and can become very fun pets. These boys must either go together or to a home that already has sheep, as sheep are very social animals and need to be with others of their own kind. Wether's also make good companion's for rams when they need to be removed from the ewe flock.


If you are interested in these lovely fellows or any of the ewes let me know and I will provide more details. Prices and other details are listed on my website sale page. http://www.fairlightfarm.com/?page_id=6

I don't see any horns on Ringo. Did you produce a "polie"? I brought home my new little polie and a ewe lamb today; you can see them on my blog. Have a great weekend!
