Icelandic Rams for Sale....


So as I prepare to leave for the Philippines in August there are a few "details" that must be taken care of. One of the biggest tasks is to sell my rams. I have listed the information below. Feel free to contact me if you would like more information. Serious inquiries only. If you aren't interested in purchasing them, your prayers that I will find a buyer would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Icelandic Sheep for Sale 2012
Icelandic sheep are considered to be a “tri-purpose” sheep. They can be used for their wool, meat and milk. They are a primitive breed and are fairly easy to care for. Icelandics are great sheep! I love our rams. They have beautiful wool and are great sheep, however I am going to the Philippines to serve as a missionary for two years and need to drastically downsize my flock. The proceeds of selling my rams will go to help fund my time at Mercy Maternity Center, a non-profit clinic that provides free maternity care. We are willing to make the younger ones “wethers” for you if you desire. For more information about the sheep feel free to contact me. Thanks for your interest!
