PIne Hill Farm

Pine Hill Farm - Sheep

When I decided that I wanted to go into sheep, I did much research into breeds both for fleece and personality. Along the way I discovered Rare Breeds Canada, and decided I would choose a breed on their priority list.

After some deliberation the Border Leicester seemed the perfect choice. The rams have a reputation for being the calmest of all the breeds; the fleece is gorgeous, long for spinning, and so lustrous it can look like mohair.

Four years ago, I had the opportunity to buy a Blue-faced Leicester ram. His personality was so calm, and his offspring are all the same. Although Blue-faced Leicesters are traditionally white, Omar was the odd black sheep that can happen in that breed every once in a while. He has left us with several beautiful coloured sheep.

This spring (2014) we have 17 lambs; some will have to go. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you are interested in buying.
