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!!!
