Our 'bide-a-leicester' sheep

Below are photos of the Border Leicester Cross sheep - or as we affectionately call them, our 'bide-a-leicesters'.  Our cross lamb program started with SuDan Farm Goober (photo at left), a very handsome, gentle and pleasently plump Border Leicester ram.   We started using Goober on some of our Jacob and Navajo-Churro ewes who just weren't producing the purebred quality lambs we were looking for.  Since most of these girls were older and were friends of the family (i.e., Karen wasn't willing to part with them) we decided to find a way they could stay and still contribute to the farm income.  We lost Goober in 2012 at ten years of age.  Our cross lambs are now sired by Goober's last son, Rollo, a white Border Leicester x Navajo-Churro cross ram, and Sudan Farm Falls, a white Border Leicester x Gotland cross ram (see below for photos).

Crossing a Border Leicester ram with our Jacob and Navajo-Churro ewes gives us fast growing lambs that carry the distinctive Border Leicester head and confirmation, making it impossible to mistake any of the resulting lambs as purebreds.  Their fleeces are quite nice and range in character from medium with crimp, to long and lustrous.  They're a great option for people who just want a few ewes to produce lambs every year for fiber and/or meat.  They also make terrific lawn mowers, fiber producers and market/meat lambs
