At the present time, we have a flock of 80 registered Shetland Sheep. Shetlands are a wonderfully primitive and diverse breed, and we are striving to maintain this diversity in our flock. We are not breeding towards a uniform "type" of Shetland. Our primary goal as Shetland Sheep breeders is to first breed for a sound animal with excellent overall conformation, excellent health, and no known genetic defects. Our secondary goal is to breed for a variety of natural colors and markings, and a variety of excellent wool for handspinning. Our fleece varies from fine wool with a tight crimp to long and silky with a loose curl. We truly believe we have something for everyone at Windswept Farms!
