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.

2017 Micron Results

Some are interested in micron results and some are not.  If you are, here are my results for 2017.  I have also added a page for Micron results, which has microns back to 2015.

There is some great information on the Fine Fleece Shetland Sheep Association web site, if you are interested in what this all means. The web address is http://www.finefleeceshetlandsheep.org/.  Look under the education tab and click on grading chart.

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.

A Ewe Lamb for Willow

ChocolateChip

ChocolateChip

ChocolateChip was born yesterday, 4/19/16 to Shet-Tu Willow x Lancien Mr. Gatz.  She is a twin, but I wasn’t around when her sister was born and she didn’t make it.  This one is the last lamb for this year.  I ended up with 9 girls and 5 boys.  Be sure to shoot me an email, if you have any interest in any of these lambs.  I have a list started of potential buyers and would love to add you to that list.
