We were city mice and bought horses and decided that it was time to move to the
country. We raised Arabian horse and showed them at local shows. Then our two boys
started in 4-H so we switched to Quarter & Paint Horses and raised them also.
While in 4-H our local county started a new bottle lamb class, and that was when we
took off and running with sheep. The first lamb we bought was at a auction, she is a
Suffolk, her name was Precious.

We enjoyed the sheep so much we decided to invest in more. We live in the southeast
corner of Iowa. And at our county fair the only type of sheep the judge looks at are
Suffolk, but I wanted woollies.
All the sheep have their own personality and demeanour. They all have a different look
and I can tell you, who each one is. Thats what I like, I'm not very big. Thats the way I like
it, they get the very best of care, food, meds, herbs, salt, water and treats.
They all have a coat to wear to keep their wool clean and free of chaff. My girls all lamb
in late winter. The babies seem to be healthier & more vigorous if born in the winter.
Abbreviation: BFL=Blue Faced Leicester         BL=Border Leicester

We like to cross breeds, I'm trying to bring    
out the best qualities for the fiber artists
