Customer Comments & More Photos
This is what some of our customers have said about DEER RUN FARM Sheep:
"One of your ewes that we now have, blessed us with twins this morning. Wonderful mom! They were up and nursing when we found them. I've gotten so tired of all the care some of our ewes are needing, it was a pleasure to have another self care ewe."
"This morning when I went to the barn I found that Trista had had two white ewe lambs sometime after 1:00 am when we last checked on them. They were already dry and nursing so all I had to do was clip and dip and move them to a lambing jug. Coopworths really are easy lambers!"
"Hi again Martha.... you aren't going to believe this..... We had 8 lambs yesterday (from 3 ewes). Agatha had 2 ewe lambs and 1 ram lamb, Tillie had twin white ram lambs and Madalyn had triplets!!!! 3 blacks.... 2 ewes and 1 ram."
"I just wanted to tell you that our three are doing well... beautiful wool."
"Just thought you would want to know that the fleece from (Deer Run)"Blaze" won best natural colored fleece and Best of Show - Sheep division (at SAFF)."
"Just wanted to let you know that I've been spinning away on Mary's fleece & am thrilled with it. We are pleased with all 3 ewe lambs but are especially taken with Emma's appearance. I can hardly wait to work with her white fleece & her body build is so attractive. "
"I had them sheared yesterday. The wool is wonderful."
Congratulations to Alex and Nate B. of NJ for a great show season with their Deer Run ewes!
Hatchtown 0029-02 "Hatch" from Maine. Hatch sheared 13.5 lbs. of wool this spring. We like the lambs that we are seeing from this silver/blue ram! He is siring lambs with good size and wonderful fleeces. This photo was taken just before shearing.
Deer Run Whitman This white ram is "Wild 'n Woolly" bloodlines top and bottom. He has the excellent bone and beautiful fleece one would expect from his breeding. Whitman has been sold to Terry and Chris M., but we bred him to a few ewes in the fall of '06 before sending him to his new home, and have kept some offspring.
new bloodlines available! We purchased ewes from Jim and Pam Child's Hatchtown Farm in Maine (including a daughter of Toula, the 2nd place Coopworth fleece at the 2005 MD Sheep and Wool Festival), Regina Malsbury's Turtle Creek Farm in Conneticut, and from Marianne Dube's Mountain Vewe Farm in Vermont. We also bought a ram from Silver Creek in Oregon.
Silver Creek Obsidian at 8 months.
Ram temperment is very important to us!
