Breeding stock are vaccinated annually with Glenvax 6 and Tasvax 8. Deworming is done on an as-needed basis to reduce parasite resistance. When you purchase a sheep, it comes with a CCIA tag and health/vaccination records. All registered sheep come with registration papers ready for transfer into your name.
In 2016, we decided to grow our flock and focus on just one breed of sheep. After some research, it was decided that American Blackbellies would be our hair sheep of choice.
The rams grow beautiful, massive horns with curls up to 30" and the ewes produce tiny, exotic lambs with badger-like facial bars. The rams average 30-32" at their withers, weigh 90-150lbs, and have beautiful neck manes. Ewes are smaller, averaging 24-28" at their withers and weigh 70-110lbs. They are lamb easily with good milking ability and have strong maternal instincts. Good feet and straight legs are a must as all our sheep graze on pastures from spring to fall.
Unfortunately, there are only a few breeders of registered American Blackbellies in Canada and importing sheep from the United States is painfully expensive. This means there are only a few bloodlines to choose from. It has taken us several years to curate a small flock of these noble animals to create our own bloodline which will be a lifelong project
