September Sales Update 2010

I have added some Shetland ewes and wethers to my sales list. All of the Shetlands are current on shots and worming. My prices are very fair due to my desire and need to trim down numbers for the winter. If you are interested in any of the Shetlands please contact me and I will answer any questions you have.
Thank you for your interest in Harvest Thyme Homestead!

This is Harvest Thyme Pumpkin. She is a 2 year old single ewe out of Harvest Thyme Abigail (fawn kat) and Lil' Country Acres Jedidiah (blk gully). She is very petite and shy. I have not registered her yet as I still am trying to figure out her color? She has an adorable face, nice little tail, and her fleece is coming in nicely this year and she is carrying the polled gene from Jed:)
Note: Thank you Rayna clarifying that Pumpkin is a gully/kat! Makes sense now:)
She is offered for sale at $65 as a registered ewe.
Sold...........thank you Karen!

Harvest Thyme Susanna
Susanna is a 2 year old single ewe out of Lil'Country Acres Eliza (fawn kat) and Lil'Country Acres Jedidiah. She is very shy, petite, and extremely single coated like Jedidiah. Her fleece is very soft with a nice crimp, unfortunately, trying to get a picture of that is quite challenaging! If you like single coated Shetlands, she is definitely your ewe and she is carrying the polled gene from Jed!
Susanna is offered for sale at $55 as a registered ewe.
Sold.......Thank you Karen!

Lil'Country Acres Polly
Polly is a 2004 black smirslet ewe. She is gentle Shetland and a very good mother! In 2009 she had black ram lamb and a black gully ewe and in 2008 had a very flashy moorit, flecket, yuglet ram lamb. She would be a wonderful addition to a Shetland flock. I am retaining her black gully ewe lamb and therefore I am offering her for sale.
Polly is offered for sale at $55 as a registered ewe.
Sold! Thank you Martha!
This one year old, big white spot wether is actually a favorite of mine and I can't believe I am offering him for sale! I have not named him because if I do, he is staying! He is very friendly, loves chin rubs, and has a very nice fleece. He was just wethered a few months ago as his one horn just did not take the right turn. This horn will need to be trimmed occassionally. He is small, no more than 60 lbs. He would make a fantastic addition to a spinner's flock!
He is offered for sale at $60.
Sold......Thank you Karen!

Harvest Thyme Sally Ann
This is an updated picture of Sally Ann, a 2005 twin, fawn kat ewe. She has lambed 2 smooth polled ram lambs when bred to a smooth polled ram. Scroll down to see more info. on her.
Sold.......Thank you Dave!

Ag Grey wether for sale......up dated picture of him. See details on previous posts. Great addition for a spinner's flock!!!
Sold......Thank you Karen!

Harvest Thyme Sweet Annie
Annie is the spittin' image of her mom, Sheltering Pines Spirit! Her sire is Jedidiah. How exciting to see spots and know there is a polled gene in there! Annie's fleece is coming in nicely this year and she is working on her shyness! She is a 2008 single ewe and is ready to be bred this year. Her dam has never given me anything but spots and I just know Annie will do the same!
Annie is offered for sale at $125 as a registered ewe.
Annie has been sold..........Thank You Dave!!!!!

Fall Garden Show

It has been a long week for me so I thought I would do a little "pick me" blog to make me smile and I thought some of my Fall Flowers might bring a smile to those reading also.

So, "Welcome" to my Fall Flower show............

A burst of crimson mums in my front yard garden.

Fall blooming garden asters in the picket garden................

.......and of course smiling sunflowers, a picture that I took this past weekend actually.

Today we had a rainstorm that brought in some humidity then cooling temps.  The window green house had collected dew along the panes giving the garden mum and pumpkin inside a "homey" feeling look:)

And always bringing a smile to my face is a fun pair of garden boots........who can resist flowers on rain boots? I can't. I admit, I have an issue with boots, well actually its an issue with shoes in general.  Well, my issue is with the stores who stock this stuff on their shelves.  Why would TSC put something this cute next to Muck Boots? Okay, so why was I even looking at Muck Boots? I already have a pair but I want the tall Muck Chore Boots for winter.  I compromised, however, and bought the flower boots as a "transitional" pair of boots between Fall and Winter.  See, I feel much better now:)

Smooth Polled Rams for Sale

The following smooth polled Shetland rams are for sale.
Both boys are current on shots and worming.

Lil' Country Acres Jedediah Smith
Jed is a 3 year old smooth polled black gulmoget ram out of Lil'Country Acres Octavian. Jed is truly my pride and joy! He is an outstanding ram in all aspects: fleece, tail, straight legs, and the BEST personality!!!! He is such a gentleman!

Why then am I selling him? Because I am stuck in my flock with his off-spring. Too much is related to him and I honestly believe he could benefit a large flock of Shetlands esp. someone who is looking for polled genetics and single coated fleeces. Jed has also produced some nice spotted ewes/rams including twin blk gullie ewes! I will never be a big time Shetland breeder and keeping him here with a small flock is just not going to benefit polled Shetlands. I would like him to be where he is appreicated for all he has to offer. I think personally, that this is one of Julianne's best produced polled rams and if I can say I had him first that is good for me;)

This fleece shot does not do any justice to Jed's fleece but black and super crimped fleece is so hard to photograph!!! Believe me when I say, its so nice!!!
Jed is offered for sale at $300
Update 10/28 Jed is no longer for sale!

Harvest Thyme Jasper
Jasper is a Jed son and is the spitting image of him in every aspect other than he is a solid black ram. His dam is Harvest Thyme Sally Ann, a fawn kat ewe (see ewes for sale). Jasper is just so mellow and laid back. Isn't he a handsome guy?

I have not used Jasper in any of my breedings as he is too closely related to my ewes, adults and yearlings. I have no doubt that he will be an outstanding producer of polled and single coated Shetlands.
Jasper is offered for sale at $125
Sold! Thank you Martha!

Both of these rams are just wonderful! I have liked the way Jed, as a single coated ram with a great tail, has improved the fleece quality on some of the spotted ewes offspring and has helped with the tails on the spotted off-spring also.

I can send additional pictures of these guys if requested. They are truly both wonderful stewards for the Shetland breed!!!

Shetland Ewes for Sale

The following Shetland ewes are for sale.
All girls are current on shots and worming.

Harvest Thyme Autumn Thyme
This beautiful ewe is out of Windswept Savannah Grace, a mioget ewe (pictured right behind Autumn) and Lil'Country Jedediah.  She has a nice crimped fleece with a good tail.  She is a bit shy but is just so striking in features!
Offered for sale at $125
 $55 as a registered ewe or $45 unregistered.

Harvest Thyme Sally Ann
Miss Sally is out of Lil'Country Eliza(fawn kat) and Windswept Yankee (mioget,yuglet,sokket ram).  She is twin ewe.  She has consistently had one of the nicest fleeces in my flock AND as for polled genetics.......she is your ewe!!!  In 2 breedings, she has produced 2 smooth polled rams when bred to Jed., a smooth polled blk gullie.  She is shy but all of her other positives make up for it!!!
Offered for sale at $125
$55 as a registered ewe, $45 unregistered

Lil'Country Acres Eliza Jane
Eliza is a 6 year old ewe and also has consistently had nice fleeces.  She always twins and is a good mother.  She is one of the first Shetlands I purchased and I have enjoyed having her here.  Her daughter is pictured  above.  Eliza would be nice katmoget addition to a flock of Shetlands!
Offered for sale at $100
$50 as a registered ewe, $40 unregistered

Fiber Wethers for Sale

The following Shetland wethers are available as fiber pets to approved home.
All wethers are current on shots and worming.

This is a beautiful Ag Grey wether with awesome crimped fleece! He is out of Windswept Betsy and Harvest Thyme Jammer. He is a bit shy and will definitely show up for some grain handouts! I can't say enough on his fleece. Fleece pics are available if interested.

Offered for sale at $30
Sold......Thank you Karen!

If your looking to add some nice, natural moorit fleece to your fiber hobby, this little wether is perfect! He is a friendly little guy, only about 55 lbs as a yearling and therefore is perfect as a fiber pet on small acres. He could also make a nice 4-H project for a youngster;)

Offered for sale at $30
Sold.....Thank you Karen!!
