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 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

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.
