Welcome, we are a small farm located in Kansas that raises registered Shetland Sheep. We are breeding for soft, buttery fleeces and great conformation. There are a nice variety of colors represented in our flock, ranging from black, grey, browns and even some spots.
Our farm also consists of some beef cattle, chickens, a couple of dogs and some cats. I will post about the happenings on our farm and when we have some little lambs for sale and in the future, fleece for spinning. So check back often to find the latest news from Prairieview. God Bless!!

Baby Lambs

Two little lambs are still in need of a home.  I have dropped the price of my ram lamb, Simon, to $50,  his horns are coming in to close, would make a great wether and has a beautiful fleece.
Also, I still have a purebred Shetland ewe for $150.
If anyone would like to share how they successfully market and sell their stock I am open to suggestions.  This is my first year with lambs and sheep for that matter.  Does anyone sell at their local livestock market and if so how do you do?
Hope everyone is having a blessed day.  Everything is crazy busy around here!

Spring 2010 Lambs For Sale

Good Day Everyone!!  This is my official first post to my new blog for Prairieview Farm.  What fun!!  It is that time of year for selling spring lambs and this is our first crop.  What an exciting time it has been experiencing this for the first time.  Our family has enjoyed seeing the new little ones running around the pasture leaping and playing, but now it is time to find them new homes.

We have 3 lambs for sale, a wether and a ewe, which are brother and sister.  They are purebred, but can not be registered, so I will be asking $50 for Joseph and $150 for May.  I was buying their mother from another farm and left her there to be bred, another ram decided to enter the mix so we have no clue which Shetland ram bred her.  At this time they are black with white markings on their face.  They look just like their half sister did at her age and she is now grey.

Also I have beautiful ram lamb that can be registered.  He is a moorit, smirslet sokket and has an amazingly soft fleece.  Everyone that comes to the farm just loves him.  His horns look like they are coming in great at this time.  A friend of mine that spins tells me his fleece is really nice.  I am asking $100 for Simon.
From left to right, Simon, Joseph and May on the end.
This is Simon up close
If anyone is interested just let me know.  Have a Blessed Day!!
