I had such a hard time picking what sheep I wanted for the farm. I wanted rare American breed. This narrowed it down quite a bit but it still left me with a lot of options and availability, fleece quality, and color is what led me to first get CVM/Romeldales.
A couple of years later though, we needed show sheep for the kids 4H projects so I acquired Shetlands. My first purchased fleece was Shetland and I knew I’d always want some of that on the farm if I ever could. At the time of writing this blurb, I don’t expect to be breeding them but you never know what will happen.
