SheepRiver Cottage Farm sheep are raised on pasture without grain. Our sheep produce the most luxuriously soft and lustrous wool!
Lamb Rams – $350.00
Every year we have a handful of stunning ram lambs that deserve, in every way, to become herd sires. These rams are gentle but not too gentle – a very, very important trait in rams. Their fleeces are amazing enough to be considered to pass on their fleece-producing genetics. All of our sheep are parasite resistant and do not have any foot issues. They are all trained to electric fence and are used to guardian dogs in the pastures and herding.
At this time, our genetics run from Romney, Coopworth, and Rambouillet so almost every ram has a unique fleece and genetic makeup. Come visit the farm and pick out the ram lamb that fits with your goals for your wool production. $350.00
Our Beloved Romney Ram – Claude – SOLD
Claude was born on our farm and we have used him to bring the fleeces up to our strict standards of luster and softness. Claude’s fleece has won the ribbons at the TN State Fair the two years it was entered.
He is gentle and stunning. He has never once threatened to ram us is absolutely safe around everyone.
Claude is a pure bred twin (we still have his beautiful sister) and we are only selling him because all his daughters are on the farm and we need some new blood in the flock.
Charlotte – SOLD
Charlotte is a four year old Romney (Daughter of Claude). Her fleece is thick, soft, and very white. She has had easy births and no lamb was every pulled. As you can see from her body condition, she’s an easy keep and in excellent flesh.
Only two of the lambs were her babies – twin girls. $400.00
Son Of Chiefton – SOLD
Son of Chiefton (aka Stan) is a purebred North Country Cheviot. We brought Stan into the flock to give us the hardiness of this ancient breed. He provided us with amazing genetics that were parasite resistant, which we have needed in this cool and wet weather.
Stan is 4 years old and you can tell from all the straight-up pointed ears in the flock that he’s prolific! $550.00
