Hi, how many are you looking for, I have some shetlands that have run with a Jacob ram lamb. Unfortunately no guarantee of in lamb.

Whereabouts are you? We have 3 zwartbles cross ewe hoggs for sale - run with a zwartbles ram to lamb late April/May (unscanned) so most of their lambs should have the attractive zwartbles markings. They are a friendly group, often coming up to you after being fed so they should be a nice little group of sheep for kids to be involved with.
We are in South Shropshire on the mid Wales border.

I was offered 87 pure Lleyns all carrying triplets a couple of days ago from a farmer friend, due end of March/April, fancy a few?

Been bloody awfull here and had to feed ewe nuts and hay as you can imagine.
Bit concerned about over doing the ewes, as the last thing I want are litters of lambs, 2 each is plenty :D

Hi Castle Farm

We are hopefully in the process of taking on a larger smallholding in the next month, fingers crossed, which has some steep land only suitable for sheep really.  After doing a lot of research have become quite taken with the Lleyns.  Not sure if ewes expecting triplets would be a good idea for us being new to sheep!! but wondered what sort of price they are. 

Thanks
Julie

Hi Julie.

I'll give Steward a ring and find out.
Padge has had some stock from him and I think he is a genuine honst guy.
