We have a wonderful historic shearing shed on our property and our name is Shepherd – how could we not have sheep!
We have been breeding Finnsheep now for 16 years. It has been a steep learning curve but our management of our Finns has improved over the years and we can always look forward to lambing percentages of well over 200%.
After visiting Finland in 2004 we were keen to try to breed the first coloured Finns in Australia. Import of semen from Finland is almost impossible now so we have bred up from coloured Bond Corriedale sheep. Breeding for colour has also been interesting but now we have some very nice black and grey Finns.
We coat part of our flock, but not the rams, lambing ewes or young lambs.
As a passionate spinner and knitter myself I am very proud of our products and offer a 100% money back or exchange guarantee if for some reason you are not happy with your purchase.
