Purebred, registered American Blackbelly lambs for sale, ready to go in September. They will be 3 months old, weaned, utd on shots and worming. We have three bloodlines so can provide you with a breeding trio or multi lamb packages. Excellent ewes, good mothers, easy lambing, good milkers. Outstanding rams with good size and great temperments. One of the easiest sheep breeds to raise, no shearing required, naturally healthy and hardy and the meat is delicious. Best breed for clearing scrub brush, they work just as hard as goats but they stay inside the fence. 🙂
