Home to a beautiful flock of registered Icelandic Sheep in Northern Illinois. 2011 was is our ninth season of lambing. We’ve worked hard to build a flock that encompasses all the aspects we love about the Icelandic breed--hardiness, exceptional meat conformation, superb maternal instincts, prolificacy and outstanding fleeces. Please look around and feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. We offer quality breeding stock, both mill spun and hand spun yarns, roving, and raw fleeces. Welcome to Red Brick Road Farm!Questionsfirstname.lastname@example.org
Wondering about the names of our sheep? "Most" of our sheep are named according to the year they were born, especially those born here on our farm. Our first lambs had "A" names, so this being our 6th year, our lambs all have "F" names. It makes it easy for us when looking at our flock to know the age of the sheep. The sheep that we bring in to our flock sometimes have their own names, or I'll rename them according to our flock year. On this blog, I'm trying to post the oldest ewes first, then I'll move on to rams, then lambs.
What a pleasure to see all your beautiful lambs (And ewes..and rams!) Your photos are wonderful and your sheep are splendid. Hope your remaining two ewes deliver easily.
Love these pictures! I wish the sun would come back here. The lamb in the first picture is so pretty :)
Oh, they are so adorable! I could just eat them up! I love all the colors. We have 4 blacks so far...am sure hoping for a little more variety out of the next five ewes!
They look very happy. I love the brown lips on the second pic. Lambs love the sunshine. I think Echo has made all of the lambs black. They are beautiful and very bounsy.
Cute pictures! I love their curly fleece and cute grins!
