Farm Info

Shet-Tu Sheep Farm was established in 2005. We are located just off I-25 across from Mead, Colorado. My goal is to breed "Traditional 1927" Shetland Sheep that conform to the 1927 standard, as clarified by Appendix A. My shetlands are fine fleeced and single coated. They are registered, not only with NASSA, but with the FFSSA registry. I do annual micron testing on all my sheep, to be certain they are maintaining the wool quality that is required by FFSSA and myself. As of Aug, 2016 my flock all tested OPP & B-Ovis negative.

Shet-Tu Sitka is next to lamb

Sitka had twin ewe lambs today.  The 1st born is named Chickasaw and the 2nd born is Kickapoo.  They are both gorgeous lambs.  Can you tell I’m using Native tribes as their names this year?

OPP & B-Ovis

I am happy to say that after having all my sheep tested, my flock is OPP & B-Ovis negative.  This required time and money.  But, I feel it is money well spent.
