Stillmeadow  Finnsheep  Ewes
Our ewe flock represents a consistant effort to select highly maternal dams from the wide genetics we have introduced  since 1994. The need for repeated downsizing has enhanced our flock since only the top ewes have been retained.  We currently manage the flock for annual lambing in April and field turnout in May which allows lambs to achieve their growth from lush pasture grasses.  By supporting the ewes nutritionally we are rewarded with dams who have ample milk to feed litters of four.

In addition to the high productivity from our eighteen Finn ewes, we immensely enjoy their temperaments.  As lambs they socialize easily and become extremely friendly and easy to handle.  By working toward specific goals we have also been able to improve wool quality and introduce a full rainbow of natural colors.

It is my good fortune to share this tranquil hilltop with these lovely creatures .

litter at 12 months age which were sired by Stillmeadow brown quadruplet Flash.

beautiful medium brown color.  A capable dam.
In 2012 she gave another triplet litter followed by quintuplets in 2013 & sextuplets in 2014 & 2016.

Dam- Stillmeadow 713, SHY, Septuplet Black
FBA 25401
​Dahlia was born chocolate brown with black facial and leg hair.  From several generations of brown genetics, she remains a puzzle to me since her soft fleece is becoming lighter and mixing both brown and grey hues together  Such is the adventure of recessive color in Finns.   Her 2013 litter gave sturdy quads with well crimped fleece......brown and black piebalds & solid black.  Both triplets and quadruplets have followed since then.

Cloud has the most perfect fleece of all the ewes.  It is supersoft with a fine crimp that feels exotic to touch.  She's a natural leader and always eager to greet her shepherd. 
Most notable is that she has given triplets in all five of her litters and also carries brown genetics.
