Two shearlings for sale, black, polled, lambed singles each with no trouble as ewe hoggs.
Hebridean x out of Texel x Mule mother (can be seen, not for sale as our first ever pet ewe!)
Been running with Hebridean ram, to lamb end of April to May.
Also two ewe hoggs, also been running with Hebridean ram. Polled and black also. One is same cross as shearlings, the other is the next generation with a Balwen Welsh Mountain father.
Good stocky ewes of commercial type, but the Hebridean (and Balwen) in them make them efficient grazers, and tend to need less hard feed than commercial ewes.
Also have nice general purpose fleeces for craft purposes, not super fine but easy to spin.
Any questions please drop me a pm.
Thanks for reading.

Scanned yesterday, one shearling having twins, the ewe lambs have both scanned with a single. The other shearling is a question mark, she may be early in lamb (under 35 days), but not guaranteed.
Will be selling the 3 confirmed in lamb, and their wether brothers at Thainstone next Friday unless interested parties have confirmed intent to buy.
