Our Sheep

Navajo-Churros, with their long staple of protective top coat and soft undercoat, are well suited to extremes of climate. Some rams have four fully developed horns, a trait shared by few other breeds of the world. The Navajo-Churro is highly resistant to disease, and although it responds to individual attention, it needs no pampering to survive and prosper. The ewes lamb easily and are fiercely protective. Twins and triplets are not uncommon. The flavor of the meat is incomparably superior, with a surprisingly low-fat content.

Please note that we have sold all this year's lamb crop other than those we are planning to add to our breeding flock.  Thank you to all who have purchased from us this year.

If you are interested in purchasing lambs from next year's crop, please send us a note so we can let you know what will be available, and when; plus indicate if you have particular interests; i.e., sex, color, polled, etc.
