6 Jul 2014

Wanted: Pedigree Shetlands for export to Brittany, France.

Eco Ferme already breeds pedigree Shetlands and would like to bring in new colours and bloodlines. We are, therefore, looking for:

4 breeding / young rams each from a different bloodline and with well spaced horns
10 ewes (born 2009-2014), can be from the same bloodlines as the rams

Any colour, including patterns, but not black or katmoget as we already have these colours.

We are ideally looking for show quality stock with fine, long fleeces.

The sheep will need to be tested as required for export (exact tests tbc but for example: ARR/ARR tested, tagged, tuberculosis, brucellosis, transport docement). Eco Ferme will pay for the tests but the UK breeder will need to arrange for them to be done.
