We used two brown rams for the 2018 crop of lambs. This resulted in a lovely crop of colorful lambs with excellent fleeces. For the 2019 lamb crop we also added a white churra marked ram lamb.
We run roughly 20 ewes on our ranch. Like our adult rams, our adult breeding ewes are registered with the Navajo-Churro Sheep Association. As a handspinner I strive for a colorful flock with correct fleece and lots of luster.
At Red Feather Navajo-Churros we breed for an old style Navajo animal that stays true to its roots. Particular attention is paid to producing a versatile fleece for handspinners while keeping with the Navajo-Churro standards. Pictured are lamb fleeces from lambs we reserved from the 2018 crop.
