Our current stock of horned, fine fleeced Shetlands come mostly from my own flock. There are not a lot of horned, fine fleeced breeders, so one must make their own stock to use!
The first ram I had the honor of getting from ShelteringPines in Michigan. This was the pick of the rams that year, and it was their last breeding year.
Sheltering Pines King Louis - 2014 horned moorit

His second micron report was:

He is a fully horned, conformationally correct and has a beautiful deep moorit fleece. I haven't used him yet so excited to use him this fall. He roos easily each spring.

Crosby went to do some work in Black River Falls for a few years but she was needing new blood, so I told her I would take him back and utilize him here.
