With record speed, reservations for black Babydoll ewe lambs have claimed all expected arrivals from this spring’s lamb crop. A waiting list will be started, in case the fates decide to shine favorably on my flock, but don’t get your hopes up tooooooo high!
Here are updated photos of the 3 lads not yet spoken for from this year’s lamb crop. The two black ones could be ready to leave by May 10th, and little Caesar, the trailer, will be ready May 22nd. They are all NABSSAR registered, RR at codon 171, and will be up to date on vaccinations and have their hooves trimmed at time of transfer. They are each $325 and buyer is responsible for transport and transfer of the registration to their farm through NABSSAR.
As of this morning, all my baby girls, existing and expected, are already promised to new homes. (Just hoping to prevent some fruitless inquiries.) If you wish to start thinking about 2018, the same players will be in the game. I will be breeding Bucko to the black ewes plus Audrey, and Squash to the white ones (including Claire minus Audrey). I will also (God willing) have a brown Finn ram’s services for Brea, Becka, the 1/4 Finn girls I keep, plus Bashful. Same info is in list form below. I hope to get a ram lamb from Bashful to breed with Brea and Becka going forward and those will be potentially registerable with the Finnsheep Breeders Association AND result in some brown fleeces in the future.
Important!!! It is receipt of your deposit check and the order of its arrival relative to others’ that keeps your spot on the reservation list. Reservations received before December 31st will be at the same rates as for 2017 lambs. Link to rates, etc. is at bottom of this post.
