Over the years some changes have occurred, dictated by nature and time. We have lost to very old age all of our Corriedale foundation ewes and some of their Cotswold-cross children. These ladies produced wonderful babies with the best qualities of both breeds! Our flock currently consists of our Corriedale ram and 45 Corriedale/Cotswold ewes and wethers.
I stopped breeding our ewes in 2004— a decision based on my age, not theirs. Our last group of lambs (affectionately known as “The Mouton Mafia) is now almost 8 years old. As our flock gets older, their wool does not grow as fast as it once did. During our long, hard winter last year I worried about a few that were shorn in the fall. As a result, I have decided not to shear any of them in the fall anymore, and just do it once a year in the spring, so mark your calendars!
We have fleeces in many colors including lots of white. The fleeces that are not sold on shearing day are processed and made into roving. We feed our sheep the best grain and hay available and we know that this good nutrition and care shows in the quality of wool fiber they produce. Wauka Valley Farm hopes that you are very pleased with your purchases from us and welcome any and all comments.
