where do people market their hair sheep? Please give me ideas or sights to visit. I have seen the university(s) data on hair sheep but I have not known anyone to sell hair sheep in large quantities.
Hi Katharine,

As Helmut mentioned, the Barbados Blackbelly Sheep Association ( has a For Sale/Wanted bulletin board. Only members can post For Sale ads, but anyone can post a Wanted ad.

You did not indicate which breed of hair sheep you are interesteed in, but when your select a breed, you can get a lot of "inside" marketing help by joining that breed's registry association. Most groups have an email group that regularly posts want ads.

You don't have to be a member of the St. Croix Sheep Assn. to subscribe to its email group at
Every week I see ads wanting to purchase these sheep, often wanting hundreds.

The Texas Hair Sheep Association ( is getting geared up to provide its members with markets for hair sheep hides.

Finally, I host a free email group for Barbados Blackbelly and Barbado sheep folks and encourage subscribers to post for sale and wanted ads. You can subscribe at

Hope this helps.
