Celebrating our 32nd year breeding finns!

 

 

 Our 4 QR rams from Brian Magee and Lighthouse Farms bloodlines are here and they are gorgeous!  They will join our two QR rams born here this year. We plan on spreading the R gene throughout our flock and then breeding back to  our original bloodlines.  We hope to have QR animals of all colors in Spring 2015.  Our one ewe lamb from Robin Hood just tested QR so we have the possibility of a RR animal next year.

We are located in the Southeast corner of Washington State, where we have raised quality finn sheep since 1982.  We raise white, black, brown, fawn, gray and pied finns. We keep several different bloodlines so we can offer unrelated animals for sale.



We breed for productivity, milking ability, consistency, fleece quality, and size. We prefer a finn that is big enough to handle quadruplets, with enough milk to raise them with very little human intervention.   We had the second set of septuplets born in the US in 1985, and many of our animals go back to that bloodline.  Our ewes frequently throw quints and sextuplets, and we had another set of septuplets born in 2011.  Two of those lambs are in our flock - Lucky 7, who is proving himself to be a great sire, and Ms 7-UP, who threw beautiful lambs this year. 



We like the Finn breed due to the docile, friendly nature of both the rams and the ewes. The lambs are very hardy. Most of our ewes lamb without assistance.  We supplement large litters of lambs twice a day, and leave them on their mother.

 

One of my last colors to set in my flock was the gray.  I am pleased to say that I have several animals that were born gray, as well as some of the fading black and dilution gray genes. 

 

 

DEVIL DOES IT AGAIN!!!!!!   

 

Devil - 3L 2-53 Celebrated her 11th birthday with her fourth set of sextuplets. 

 

 

This is the kind of ewe line we try to raise.  All of the ewes are very consistent.  She is shown here with her 2007 sextuplets  at one month old - all still being raised on her (with some supplemental milk).  Her lambing record is 1-4-5-6-6-6-2-4-4-5-6-2 for 51 lambs in 12 years, with only one lamb born dead(died in utero -  very small).  This bloodline is one of my most productive!  Angel, one of her daughters (3L 6-26) has had 24 lambs in 6 years (3-3-5-3-5-5) years, and her dam, Abbey (Witt 3-97), had triplets when she died at age 14! Abbey has a 3-2-4-4-4-3-4-3-3 lambing record for the years that we have owned her (333%, or 30 lambs in 9 years).  Devil's niece Meeka (3L 6-36), had 6 lambs in 2009 at age 3 (2-5-6-4-5-5-5) and had quints this year for a 457% lifetime.  This is the kind we like!  Easy to work with, good mothers and lots of milk.
