The Sheep

We started with a small commercial flock of Katahdin and Katahdin cross ewes, one Katahdin ram and one Dorper ram as a means to keep our twenty acres from being a fire hazard in the summer. 

I had so much fun with the commercial flock, that I decided to branch into an all-purpose breed that might actually pay for itself in the long run. After extensive research, I decided on Finn sheep, or Finnish Landrace as they are known in the country they came from. Finns are a lovely, multi-purpose breed that has a beautiful, fine, lustrous fleece; excellent milking capabilities; excellent mothering abilities; sweet, non-gamey meat; and they produce litters (3 to 6) of lambs when they are mature! They are very docile and tame with very little handling. 

Finns

We currently have one of the largest selection of Finnsheep for sale in California! We have adult stock for sale year round, and lambs available seasonally. Contact us any time if you are interested in mature or proven stock.

We are trying to down size. I let things get a little out of hand, and we had 79 ewes this year. We moved the sheep into a converted greenhouse, and built more lambing jugs, but I need to get things back under control! We are having a sheep fire sale! I will be updating the website with lambs, and most of the ewes and rams are for sale.

We still have several yearling lambs to lamb in the next month. Contact us if you want to reserve a special lamb before it's born, or request a specific pairing for next year. 

The 2018 lambing season is well under way! We already have 59 lambs as of February 25, 2017! Scroll down to the ewes to see who has had what!

Finn Rams

Breeze

3L-10-119

Sire: 3L-9-70 Zypher


Dam: Wee Croft 3014 AI Dolly


Brown, Triplet. He is a gorgeous, big ram, with a gorgeous fleece.

 Breeze died this summer while off at a friend's grazing down pasture. But he has left an amazing legacy behind, in beautiful, sweet lambs with docile personalities and gorgeous fleeces.

Now deceased, but was a great herd sire.

Remington

3L 10-006

Sire: Wee Croft The Chocolate Man


Dam: 3L 8-11 (QD GR)


Black, Triplet. Beautiful crimpy fleece. Big boy. He is my biggest ram. 

Now deceased, but was a great herd sire.                                                                                                                       

Rivet

ED210

Sire: "ED Rammie" FF0045


Dam: "ED Rosie" WC0149

Appears to be homozygous for white. Hasn't produced anything but white, even bred to colored ewes.

Now deceased, but was a great herd sire.

Dakota

ED202


Sire: Washington 3L-736


Dam: Sepia ED#102


Brown, triplet


Medium brown fleece with lots of crimp and small amount of silvery grey throughout it

Dakota died this summer while at a friend's grazing down grass. He also left behind a lot of beautiful lambs with soft, crimpy fleeces.

Now deceased, but was a great herd sire

Mousse

Medley 11-003


Sire: Remington


Dam: Truffle


Brown, Quadruplet


He has a deep beautiful rich fleece with lots of crimp. His fleece was my shearer's favorite of all the rams last year. This one is a pet. Not for sale. He is just too sweet and gentle, and has a delightful crimpy fleece with very little greying or silvering in it.

Argos

Medley 12-017


Sire: Graham, 3L 9-61, Brown


Dam: Maera, 3L-222, white


Black, twin.


Almost entirely black, and holding his true black color, no fading. He carries a brown gene and a pied gene from his grandsire, Eino, who came from semen from Finland. This ram breeds true black fleeces into his lambs. Many of his lambs never grey out. Not for sale.

Dango

Medley 12-018


Sire: Deacon, 3L 9-85, black triplet


Dam: Mochi, 3L 11-295, black triplet


Fading black single from a yearling that was bred, then shipped. He carries a spotting gene and a brown gene. He is the color of steel wool (no pun intended)!

Sold

Pikku

Medley 12-019


Sire: Mr. Spot, black Piebald triplet


Dam: Smokey, grey quadruplet.


Grey piebald, twin, photographed at age 2.


His spots have completely faded before one year of age, he looks silver now. His fleece was my shearer's favorite year year before last.

Pikku caught a nasty pneumonia two years ago and despite multiple rounds of antibiotics, he succumbed to it a few months later. He was my first grey and first pied sire and had the most fine fleece of all my rams.

Paikka

Medley 13-030


Sire: Pikku, grey and white pied twin


Dam: Godiva, fawn twin


Grey pied, twin, photo at age 14mos.


I made the mistake of selling his mother before I realized how wonderful her fleece was. He has the same tight, crimpy, high luster fleece, so I kept him

For Sale $300 Paikka's fleece turned out at least as nice, if not better than his sire's (Pikku). His mother, Godiva was purchased by a hand spinner who just loves it's buttery brown color and super high crimp. His fleece is just like that as well.

I need to update to show the newer, amazing rams we have now! Stay tuned!
