You have arrived at the website of Pitchfork Ranch (est. 1986) located in Swartz Creek, MI, where we raise purebred Romneys, Bluefaced Leicesters and llamas. Happy browsing and thanks for visiting our site.
We have posted some fresh fleeces for sale, including several BFL fleeces. We also have gotten several pelts back from the processor, both white and natural colored, one is a BFL. We also have added the Teeswater breed to our flock. See our first shearing of Ingrid, a high percentage ewe. Click here to view the sheep fleeces.
Check out the pelts here.
Teeswater fleece, by Ingrid
We bred our Schwider ram (Al-lin) to a SORB ewe (Aretha) and got the best of both. Mr. T is extremely long, straight and square built, carrying a beautiful, consistent medium gray fleece. We have just a few lambs out of him for 2013 because of him being shown. We are looking forward to putting him to many more ewes this fall and seeing his first real crop of lambs.
Mr. T is RR at codon 171, like his sire.
