Sales List update: EWES

click names for pedigree links

Locksfield Burgundy-
2007 Moorit Smirslet sokket ewe.
Sire: SheltgPines Jerome
Dam: LocksField Amber Myst
Very PRETTY ewe.. Keeping her twin. Burgundy is the darker of the two, so I wish I could keep her, but her sister is friendlier and flashier- so she wins out. Burgundy used to be the friendlier one. Fleece leans toward single coat. I have the prettiest moorit/white spotted lambs from this line. $325

Burgundy and her twin --->


Moorit krunet/blettet-
VERY pretty, great conformation. I wish I could keep her, but I do have her dam's twin (my favorite ram) and several of her sire's offspring. Sire is a smirslet- Avery should produce some gorgeous spotted lambs bred to a spotted ram! $300

Avery as a lamb --->


Locksfield Braeton -
Moorit blettet. Perfect conformation and a tiny ideal tail.. Has produced some facial and neck spotting/freckling. Excellent ewe- great buy! $200

Braeton's sire Archer --->


Locksfield Genevieve -
Black smirslet sokket..
It's hard to make a decision to sell when they are this sweet AND spotted. Friendly- very sweet. Carries moorit (Bb). $325


Locksfield Edelweiss -
Grey krunet- gorgeous long SILKY flowing wool that she also produces.. She was a spotty lamb. Has pretty spotted lambs and has produced several lambs with the same incredible wool as herself. Carries Bb gene (for brown) and Aa for solid (black/moorit). $300

Edelweiss' daughter Evangeline --->

Locksfield Liese -
Pretty grey ewe.. Short tail. Has small horn buds. Nice fleece- intermediate with some luster. Should carry and be capable of producing some bold spotting since her her sire was Lariat, a very flashy black flecket ram. $275

Liese's sire Minwawe Lariat ---->


Locksfield Cachey
I believe she is the shortest ewe in my flock. She was a very unique lamb- with psuedo gulmoget markings! She had the most amazing sire- fabulous horns. I now have her yuglet granddaughter. Carries Bb gene (for brown).

Cachey's sire Fletcher Stonewall --->

Videos from December

As some of you know, I moved to back to Indiana last August, but the sheep remained on my parents' farm in Missouri. Last December I made a trip back to Missouri for a visit. As I approached the sheep field I wondered if the ewes would remember me after several months absence. Amazingly, when they saw and heard me, they all ran to me and I was surrounded by my 20 beautiful girls! Later I captured a couple of videos that I thought I'd share.

The Missouri farm has not yet sold, so there won't be any Locksley Fields lambs this spring... I will need to make a further reduction of the flock and will be posting the new sales list in the next day or two. This list will include many of the sheep I would like to keep, in fact they are the ones I had no intention of selling. But, as I am not currently able to be their caretaker, the best thing to do is to decrease the flock a bit more.

Stay tuned!
