    Hi we are looking for a couple sheep...Breed is not that important...they need not be registered..Would prefer a few ewes...bred is even better..Will be part of a petting zoo at a pumpkin patch...Lots of other little pets running around.
    We will travel a few hours to pick them up.

    Hi Shannon,

    I am located a few hours away from you (East of Madison), and raise several variety of sheep. Our lambs will be available later in June and be looking for good homes.
    Please email me at eieio@smallbytes.net if you are interested in more details.

    Thanks,

    Deb

    Ok you sheep people what kind of sheep did I buy. I found this very pregnant and in need of a good shearing ewe from a local person. They say it is a columbian 18 months old...

    Not a Columbian, looks like a Black Welsh Mountain ewe to me.

    Looks like a Shetland or small Icelandic to me. Could be BWM. How is the tail shaped?

    Shetland was my first guess; the wool looks more shetland than icelandic to me.

    Short undocked tail so I am guessing Shetland...Only weighs about 65-70lbs
