SOAY SHEEP FOR SALE
3 x RAMS 18 months old - £35 each
4 x EWES various ages - £40 each
Hi, I currently have Soay Rams & Ewes for sale.
All the ewes have lambed this year.
All sheep will be wormed and fly treated before leaving.
Soay sheep are very good conservation grazers – making them ideal for a smallholder to keep paddocks down – and they will also happily forage and clear an overgrown area in no time.
They are very low maintenance – shedding their own wool, they will keep their own hooves trim if provided with some hard ground or rocks to walk or climb on.
Soays are a small and very hardy breed which can be left out to graze all year round, preferring just a covered shelter in bad weather. They are inquisitive and will come with a bucket, but are also quite timid and shy. They have also proved to be good companions to my goats over the years.
I am also told that Soay meat is very good – akin to game – low in cholesterol and lean.
Also, having visited many craft fairs – I have noticed that Soay wool is becoming increasingly popular.
Buyers must have a CPH number and own transport is required.
