Clun Forest Ewes - Page 1
Our goal at Timberwood Farms is to breed self-sufficient sheep with an emphasis
on a lean meat carcass and fine wool. Toward this end, we selected ewes for our
foundation stock whom we believe embodied these characteristics.  All our
foundation ewes trace directly back to five top UK rams
(Saltersford's Derek,
Pen-Y-Wern's Beater
, Court Llaca's 3815, Guifron's 4150, and Easter
Beltie).

Our ewes are pasture raised and only occasionally receive grain as a treat.  We
participate in the Clun Forest Lambplan.  In addition, our stock is OPP, Scrapie,
and foot rot free.

Opal is a strongly built ewe with an nice quality fleece, ideally suited to handspinning.  Her face
& legs are mostly wool free, and her ears are set at the correct "11 & 1" position.   Opal is a very
friendly ewe, and is usually the first to greet us when we enter the pasture.

Pearl has the classic Clun face - wool free with a narrow muzzle, full topknot, and erect ears.  
In addition, she is a well built ewe showing good frame size, parasite resistance, and the
finest fleece in the flock with staple length suitable for hand-spinning.

Ruby is the largest of our ewes.  She is very well built in terms of size, conformation and
substance.  She has a bit of wool on her face & legs, but she has a decent quality fleece.  
Ruby shows excellent parasite resistance and she is probably the tamest of our ewes.
