This is Kenya our Ram lamb He is American Barbados/Sussex (25%) & Painted Desert Sheep 9 months old.



This is Kenya and his Poppa Zulu


and the beauty he is Kenya:


Kenya is for sale for 175.00

Then.....i have these two ewes who are both bred. The first is an American Barbados bred to my Painted Desert Ram:


The next ewe for sale is "Rosebud" who is just 1/5 years old and is also bred by our Ram Zulu. Rosebud is American Barbados crossed with a Dorper Ram.


The lamb stuck in behind is the baby of the Barb ewe from this spring.
Both ewes bred 250.00 each

Thanks for looking......Carol

I was think of putting up a fence in the back. I see that you use 4"x2" galvanized welded fence? Does that work well for you? Do you use a electric wire with the welded fence as well? How much area would I need for 2 lambs? Are these lambs pets or for food? Thanks for posting.

Hi BCBOY
We do not use electric wire...in fact have ripped it all out...  It is not to keep the sheep in but for predators to keep them out.  We have 5 dogs and that tends to keep out any un-wanteds.  
I raise sheep to work my dogs and I sell what I don't want either for breeding or for food to others.  I do not eat red meat, so don't eat lamb either...but I love my sheep and love to raise them properly.
I love the welded wire fencing, but you have to be careful of the gauge of wire as some are just too light to hold anything in. I think this is 14 g wire instead of the regular 12 gauge.
Hmmm, the area for 2 lambs? They say 6 sheep/acre so...i would say 1/3 acre. They are great for grazing your lawns down..but will eat anything in your garden...
