Shetland Sheep: Rich in History, Rich in Textiles
Shetland Sheep: Rich in History, Rich in Textiles! 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.

Have you heard?
My Shepherdess says she's comin' to market today! To market, to market, baabaa baabaa! I also heard her say something about a SALE! That means, she is giving all of you a thank you for supporting us little baabaas all year. She does that for us too! We love her tokens of appreciation! But since we're sheep, she does not give us savings because we don't know how to use money, and we're not supposed to eat it. Can't hold money in our little hooves, either. Rather, she gives us apples or fresh, new, yummy mineral blocks, which we lick right up! So come on out to market and SAVE! See you there! (giggle, giggle...watch for me on the Shepherdess's sign she made, and I'm on it! I'm a starrrrrrr!)
