Sheep for Sale

Those of you who attended the Gagetown Fibre Fest in June of this year will remember the fabulous Elvis, the four horned Jacobs Sheep ram and his family. He and his flock are for sale, along with their longtime companion and guardian donkey.

Jacobs Sheep are a very ancient breed and are classed as a small to medium sheep. They are easy care and known for being hardy. The cool thing about them, besides their horns (both ewes and rams can have up to 6), is the fact that they are spotted, giving you both white and black wool that is quite nice for handspinning.

If you are interested in the flock, you should get in touch with Barb and Roy Telford via e-mail at Or I can always pass on a message!
