    I am looking for some healthy Shetland Sheep. The price must be reasonable as I just want them for wool (spinning), ornaments/pets :) , and to keep the weeds down in the pasture. Need not be registered, but purebred. I am located in central Illinois and would like to find sheep within a reasonable driving distance.
