An Intrinsic Love for The Craft

Capturing Magic Through The Lens


 Our flock is registered with the American Miniature Cheviot Sheep Association.  We breed for conformation, disposition, fleece quality and hardiness.  Since moving to the farm in 2011, coyotes have been a challenge and caused great losses each spring.  Initially, llamas were introduced for predator control, without success.  Donkeys followed and although they offered a warning by braying loudly, little was done to deter the coyotes.  A single Great Pyrenees stayed with the flock, but was unable to prevent the coyotes from killing the spring lambs and occasionally a ewe or two.  A few months ago, the addition of Tina and Fey, two Anatolian Shepherds, have been the only successful attempt to minimize the losses.  The farm is fenced with “Red Brand” netwire with a strand of barbed wire near the ground and another along the top.  Coyotes are a crafty lot and the fence seems to make it inconvenient for them to cross the farm, but it definitely does not work to prevent entry.  We are looking forward to the future of being able to work on growing the flock without suffering substantial losses each spring.

Let’s face it – some sheep are really cute.  In addition to growing nice, full fleeces, it’s beneficial to consider a bloodline that looks great in the field.  After all, part of the fun is enjoying the tranquility created by a beautiful a flock grazing peacefully.  A hardy breed with few parasite and health concerns is a necessity.  Spring lambs sell for $150 and ewes are $350.
