2017 Sale List – Sheep

All listed lambs have passed two month evaluations. Evaluations are based on general and breed specific confirmation, wool quality (length, density, crimp) and potential of the animal as a breeder that fulfills or exceeds the standard for a traditional 1927 style Shetland sheep.

We try to honestly and transparently offer strengths and critiques of any animal we sell as a breeder. Rams that do not meet our standards are processed for meat in the fall. If a lamb is labeled not for sale they are either being retained, sold, or will be processed for meat. We do not sell discount rams and strive to only sell rams that will benefit the breed.

Shetland Ewes

Emancipation Ava- $300 after she weans her lambs

I kept Ava and her sister Oseola over the winter to evaluate. They are out of my friendliest ewe, Bailey who always gives me lovely lambs. I like them both but Ava doesn’t have quite as consistent of crimp dropping off a bitch near the britch. Her wool has a lovely long staple and teeny tiny crimp that feels delightfully soft to the touch. Ava is katmoget and may carry spots.

Emancipation Mindy- $250 for sale after she weans her lambs

I purchased a white ram this season, so I am anticipating many more white ewes in the flock next season, so I am willing to part with Mindy as she is very related to the rest of my flock. Soft fleece, good confirmation.

Emancipation Acres Kestrel $250 after she weans her lambs or $400 with both of her ram lambs at her side. One of her lambs has a beautiful little moon spot. Her lambs pictured below.



Sheltering Pines Temperence- $300 after she weans her lambs

Temperence is a Salicional daughter. She has maintained a crimpy fleece, and is very fine especially for a black. I have owned her for a few years and kept daughters. Very well put together sheep out of amazing lines.

KSPIRIT Farm Miss Liberty $250 after she weans her lambs- SOLD

Libbey is one of my friendliest ewes. She loves attention and treats. She is a mioget gulmoget, so very interesting pattern. Her wool is a bit longer and more open then I prefer so she is for sale after she weans her lambs.

Emancipation Valarian  $200 after she has weaned her lambs or $300 with lamb at side. On the smaller side, but with some of the finest fleece in my flock. We use our Shetlands for meat and wool so I am selling her because of her size. First photo from summer 2016.


Emancipation Lavender- $200 for sale after she was weaned her lambs. She is smaller like her sister Valarian, which is why I’m selling. She did have a lamb last year, and raised her well. The lamb is modified and I am keeping her
