New Lambs and Starter Flocks

Soay lambs dozing Once lambs arrive next spring, we expect to have enough ewe lambs for at least one and probably two starter flocks: three or more ewe lambs and one or more yearling rams that are genetically diverse to the ewes. If you are interested in reserving a starter flock of heritage sheep, please review our Conditions of Sale and then give us a call or send us a note. We fill reservations in the order we recieve deposits. As always, we are particularly interested in providing genetically diverse starter flocks to conservation-minded families all over the United States and Canada. What goes into a starter flock … ►

Or a Mixture Of Lambs and Yearling Ewes

In some years we can sell you a starter flock that includes yearling or 2-year-old proven ewes, which allows the new owner to British Soay ewe breed the first fall rather than waiting a full year until the ewe lambs grow up. Contact us if you are interested in this alternative to the traditional “ewe-lambs-only” starter flock.

Annual Scratch and Dent Sale: Newly-Retired Flocksires

Soay rams grazing

We usually have one or more newly-retired flock sires for sale after they have completed their assigned task with the ewes.

These fellows have their share of “battle scars” from knocking heads during Retired Flocksires for Sale … ► rut each year, but of course the damage is far removed from the breeding equipment.

Yearling Rams

Yearling Soay ram Newsflash: Sheep breeders almost always have more rams than they can use as breeders, yet all of us want to bring in new blood from time to time. We sure do. If you are looking for a young ram to diversify your flock, please contact us or check out the latest posts on our blog (priscilla.saltmarshranch.com) about which specific rams are still for sale. We almost always have available rams who are eager to assist you in your breeding program.

Wethers

From time to time we have a few wether lambs available as companions for your breeding rams or to use as a non-breeding group of handsome lawnmowers. Let us know if you're interested.
