Our farm mission is to enjoy and promote the wonderful diversity of the Shetland breed by fully utilizing to the best of our ability all they have to offer historically. We believe the best preservation and management of this breed includes it's full spectrum of history. We encourage old and new shepherds alike to join in the fun by engaging in fiber arts, especially spinning and knitting, as this breed is so intimately linked with those aspects of the arts.

This is The Chimp. He's one of our roosters. His name is actually Blackie...which migrated to Blackie-Midnight....which then became Chimpy, or The Chimp. Chimpy loves cracked corn or watermelon. In fact, if you give him some, he makes chimpanzee noises! Oohhoohhoohhaahhaahhaahh! Hence, he is now belovedly known around here as...The Chimp.
Even handsome roosters who are talented at making chimpanzee noises have to get a bath sometimes...
I know I know....he's not a sheep! :)
