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.

Emancipation Effie – Emancipation Katniss x OK Acres Einstein- $225

Moorit, krunet, ear tag 290/0212

Does not have a lot of crimp coming in yet, which often happens with her mother’s line. I’ve kept her mother for years and her half sister. She is very soft and I believe the crimp will come in as she ages. She is a bit narrow of body. Could be modified. I will likely keep this ewe if she doesn’t sell.

RAM LAMBS

Emancipation River- Emancipation Cleo x Emancipation Bruce- $350

Cleo is one of my favorite ewes, sweet as pie, has done well being shown, and has the density and crimp in her wool that I am looking for. This ram is my favorite of the ram lambs I am selling. He is very crimpy, soft as butter, has a good stance, nice legs, and overall very nice confirmation. He draws the eye, and wants to be looked at. His scurs are a bit wonky, and may need to be trimmed, but they should stay small. If he was not so related to my flock I would keep him without question. Ear tag 0246/0206

Shetland Ewes

Emancipation Ava- $300

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

I am willing to part with Mindy as she is very related to the rest of my flock. Soft fleece, good confirmation.


Sheltering Pines Temperence- $300

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

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 Valerian  $200

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  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
