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.

Yarrow wins at WSWF – 2015

I knew Shet-Tu Yarrow was nice, but didn’t know how nice.  He won Reserve Champion and Best Fleece on Hoof at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival in 2015.  To me, that is an extreme honor..because I know how tough the competition is there.
