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.

Cute little wethers looking for good homes. Will be cute and irresistible, and will pester you for scratches and attention. Will mow and trim your pasture and grow you a beautiful fleece. Cookies occasionally needed.

I'm halter trained and love attention. I will seek you out for scratches and cookies. My fleece is a lovely soft intermediate fawn. I have to go with my brother, Aberdeen, 'cause he really needs me.

I'm very shy, but I love scratches and cookies. I'm always following my brother and sometimes he gets me in trouble. I'm also halter broken. I have a lovely intermediate soft moorit fleece. I have to go with my brother, Angus.

(Locksfield Griffen x Locksfield Rain)
I'm a momma's boy and hang out with her all the time. She has taught me to always stay behind the flock and make sure all the morsels of grain are cleaned up. My shepherd says I act just like my mom, but I'm not sure what she meant by that. I'm shy, but I'm not wild, and I like people. I have a very, very soft grey fleece, which should stay a darker blue as I mature.

(Sheltering Pines Jerome x Fairlight Birdie)
I'm a little (well maybe no so little) scurred wether who has always loved my shepherd (except for maybe after the wethering incident). She used to carry me to the barn, because I didn't like to get my feet muddy. She doesn't do that anymore though. I'm very friendly and curious, and I love scratches and cookies and just hanging out. My shepherd says I do have a very 'unique' voice. I will most likely have a primitive double coated fleece and I have a little white spot on my head.

If you are interested in purchasing these lovely little fiber pets you can check out my website for prices and details. They would love to have their own homes where they'd get more attention!

I sure wish I had room for these guys as well as my own. I'm afraid we're all trying to find homes for good wethers.
If only feed here were cheaper....
