Anyone Need a New Ram?
Anyone need a new ram? I've decided I don't have the heart for sending lambs to market. Because I have limited acerage fenced that means I need to stop creating more. My current ewe flock has all the colors and textures I will ever need for my hobbies. Therefore I've decided to find homes for my boys. First is Flash, he is a yearling cormo/shetland/finn cross. He has a nice stocky build and is a deep dark chocolate brown wool. He is a respectful boy but will come up to the gate to get chin scratches. He would make an excellent ram for a spinner's flock. Update: My friend Dustin has agreed to take Flash, so Flash is going back where he came from to make nice morrit babies this year.
The other boy I need to find a home for is Thor. Thor is a registered Shetland ram that was born here at Storm Warning. He is a proven yearling who settled all of his ewe flock last year at six months of age. I cannot say enough good things about this boy, he has it all, nice build, fleece, and temperment. Please contact me if you read this blog and need a new ram for your flock.
I'm a shepherdess, spinner, quilter, weaver and knitter. I have many furry friends including german angora rabbits, my small flock of shetland and cormo sheep, my lap cats, and an australian shepherd. We live on a small homestead near the Hoosier National Forest where we grow our gardens and enjoy nature.
