Rams for Sale: Revision

Revised June 1, 2008... I took photos of all of the boys after shearing, so all of these photos are recent. All registered stock or will be registered at time of sale. For more information email:

Locksfield Montague.. Minwawe Tornado x Locksfield Amber Myst. Heavy horns.. Quite a looker. I registered him as moorit, but he may be mioget. Out of only 10 ewes, I'm keeping his twin sister and two half sisters. I really like this bloodline! He is small sized and easy to get on a halter. RESERVED

Locksfield Hawthorne.. SheltrgPines Jerome x Minwawe Hopper Moorit smirslet sokket ram. Good conformation, nice disposition. My photos aren't very good... Photo on the right is of Hawthorne and his twin Joaquin as lambs. Hawthorne lost a horn as a lamb and I had been unsure that the other would clear, but decided to hold off on wethering. His horn has actually moved farther away and there is a good space between his horns and head that I feel confident that he could be a breeding ram. Horns are more of a "teacup" British type, in contrast with my more typical horns. Hawthorne's sire has quite a bit of British blood. $.

Minwawe Tornado

Great producer of spots. Nice small size. He has retained good color depth. I have a couple of his daughters, as well as a half sister in my keeper flock. I like this line due to the dark moorit color, small size and markings. SOLD

My Special "Reserve" List:

Locksfield Joaquin..
SheltrgPines Jerome x Minwawe Hopper
I just love this guy.. I had not seen him since December and I was very pleased with how he turned out when I saw him in April. He has nice straight legs and nice color depth as well as good horn width. $400

Fletcher Dante

This guy is so handsome.. Awesome color- not sure I've seen another quite his shade. Only offering for sale because I will retain a daughter and granddaughter.

See more recent post for prices on these guys:

Minwawe Tornado - Handsome moorit yuglet sokket ram. Small sized, finer boned. He has good horns and has produced rams with nice wide horns.. I used him 2 years and he has produced some beautiful spotted lambs for me! I really like him all around, but I do have offspring.

Locksfield Montague

- Moorit yuglet sokket and possibly bronget (white chest). I love this guy's head/horns and his compact size. Beautiful long wavy fiber. He's so handsome! May be modified. Needs an experienced shepherd.

Locksfield Joaquin- Moorit smirselt sokket.. Sire: SheltrgPines Jerome, Dam: Minwawe Hopper
What a cute little ram.. Seems to be a UK type single coat fleece. I think he may end up smaller sized. Darker than his brother.

Fletcher Dante - Shaela blettet ram. Only listed here because I would consider selling him since it will be easier to move with as few rams as possible. I have a smirslet daughter of Dante's and acquired a yuglet sokket granddaughter of his recently, so I will be able to keep some of his line. He has the most incredible horns and I love his color -modified genetics. LONG fleece. Has a lightning bolt mark on forehead and has produced strong spot markings.

Update on Ewes for Sale

A number of ewes have sold or been reserved, and two are still available. They have both been reliable lambers with trouble-free births.. Both have sires with awesome, wide horns. Prices of these girls reflects my need to reduce the flock- not their quality! Braeton and Cachey are priced at $200 each. It is possible to pair them with almost any of the rams I have available, as they are unrelated and would compliment any of them. Email:

Locksfield Braeton ... 4 year old ewe.. One of the most correct lambs I've had.. She's the offspring of two of my favorite sheep. Brae has a little ideal shetland tail and straight legs.SOLD

Braeton as a lamb- what head markings!

Braeton, around 6 months old.. Take a look at that conformation.

Braeton's parent's Locksfield Rosebriar and Locksfield Crimson Archer:


Locksfield Cachey .... Grey ewe.. 6 years old and plenty of years of lambing left. She comes from some older bloodlines that I'm very fond of. Her sire Stonewall had a set of the most massive horns, but he had quite a nice disposition. SOLD

Cachey was one of the most uniquely colored lambs I've had.. She had psuedo gulmoget markings in addition to some speckling on both shoulders. Here is a photo of her as a lamb -->

Here is Cachey at around 5 months old with friend, Alura.

Shearing is finished!

On my April visit to Missouri, I was able to get shearing done, as well as vaccinations and worming.. Here are a few of the ewes after shearing, (left to right), Morgan, Genevieve and Salem:
