Ryeland lambs
« on: July 28, 2015, 12:47:11 pm »
It is with a heavy heart that I am looking to sell two of my beautiful girl lambs  :raining: The land we have is not enough to support too many sheep and we have decided to use their dad for another year and have nowhere to separate them off. The boys are going in the freezer, but it seems wrong to eat girl lambs (call me daft!) and 2 lambs in the freezer should be plenty for us.
Phoebe and Ruby (that's what you get for letting your 4 year old niece name lambs!) were born on the 24th March. They are not registered as their mum wasn't registered. Their Dad is. I don't really want them going to market but thought they might make someone nice lawn mowers etc.
How much would one expect to pay for a non registered Ryleland ewe lamb?
Sorry, I don't seem to have a recent piccie of them. This was them at the beginning of June.

Here is an idea of what people are charging for em.

the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.

where are you based? I may be interested in them as breeding ewes - they would be run with hebrideans, castlemilks - 2-3 pedigree texels and occasionaly comercial mules when I let flocks mix (usually allow them to mix in winter for easier feeding.

Kept on semi-organic holding and grazed lightly on low stocking (2-3 acre)

I'm interested,  i have 14 Ryeland ewes,  a mixture of registered and non and am looking to expand my Ryeland flock.

They must know this as out of all the lambs they had this year,  only three were girls!

jm it looks like you are sorted but if not you could try the rare breed auction at York Auction Centre in Oct. They look lovely but unregistered dont tend to fetch that much. Less than I sell mine for as butchered lamb to be fair.


Not sure if they have to be registered of not for the rare breed sales? :thinking:

Thanks Buffy. Looks as though they have found a happy new home thanks. I am too soft and would rather not put them though sales.
