We started our flock in 2021 with 5 ewe lambs , all registered Scottish Blackface Breed. We purchased the lambs from a reputable local breeder giving them the highest quality attention and love. We are continuing the highest quality and attention that these unique and beautiful animals deserve . They are loved and pampered while on our farm.
We are currently a member of the Scottish Blackface Breeders Union ( SBBU ) Indiana Sheep Association , Valais Blacknose Sheep Society ( VBSS ) as well as Valais Blacknose International Sheep Breeders Association & Registry
( VBISBAR )
We are currently breeding with only maximum points genetics from Elite Sheep Reproduction , LLC and Valais Blacknose New Zealand
The frozen semen straws have been imported from Valais Blacknose New Zealand using only the highest quality Rams .
These frozen semen straws are handled with the utmost care and shipped in liquid nitrogen container to the US. They are handled only by professionals and stored at Reproduction Speciality Group, Inc.
The laparoscopic artificial insemination will be done by Dr. Tad Thompson at the Reproduction Speciality Group, Inc. , under anesthetic to keep the Ewe comfortable .
The ewes will be cared for at our farm with the greatest attention to love for the animal and care with the offspring lambs .
The first Generation ( F1 ) lambs are from registered Scottish Blackface dams (mothers ) and the Sire ( father ) is from 100% Valais Blacknose Ram Strathedeen Alexander .
These sheep are some of the cutest sheep in the world.
They are a beautiful stout and strong animal with amazing fleece quailities. The color markings are so adorable and unique . The purebreds are rare to the US at this time with only a handful available .
WHAT MAKES THEM SO DIFFERENT

They make wonderful pets due to their unique character , disposition and loving nature.
