Who is the cutest lamb in the land? Check out some candidates here!
Our lambs are a Santa Cruz-Shetland mix. Santa Cruz is an extremely rare American breed from Santa Cruz island (only a few 100 remain). Their desirable traits are: extreme hardiness, high survival rates, and fine, super-elastic wool prized by hand spinners. Our 3/4 Santa Cruz ram descends from the so-called Stanley flock and was purchased from Paula Garner who is helping to save the rare breed. Shetland sheep are a recovering breed in the United States prized for their soft, fine wool. By combining the two we bring the Santa Cruz hardiness and elastic wool qualities to the Shetlands. The lambs are beautiful and we have had a 100% survival rate this Spring despite cold weather. We will be offering some of these for sale in August. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
