Fabulous mother and excellent temperament. LONG staple wool. This is a ewe that we shear 2x a year instead of one. Year after year this ewe continues to perform well and produce a great fleece. That is the advantage of great genetics. Chai, her sire, was the senior ram at POV farm for many years. He was the picture of a strong correct finn ram. Sassafras is known for her friendly nature and may be the one that greets you if you visit the farm on one of our tours.

Iris is Hawthorn x Maple. Iris spent her first year at a neighboring farm with Lily keeping a llama company.

2011 White quad.
Genotype: Awt Aa BB Bb lambing record: 1,3,3,4,4,4.
This ewe produced the Grand Champion Finnsheep Fleece at the 2016 Maryland Sheep and Wool festival. In 2016, Finnsheep were the featured breed there and so there was some tough competition and lots of soft nice lamb fleeces but, Betula’s 5 year old fleece took home the ribbon! Not only does she produce award winning fleeces but, she also has large fast growing lambs. Her mature weight is about 175#. She still displays a nice strong topline even after 19 lambs! This ewe is a well known greeter and also a flock leader guiding the way from one pasture to the next.
2015 Triplet Brown based Agouti Blue (aka badgerface) ‘Nancy’. Oh, this ewe is easy on the eyes and FULL of luster. Not only do we like all the amazing fleece she grows but, we are very proud of her strong conformation. Wide and long. She is also QR for scrape resistance. This is a great ewe out of Tuuli sired by Leif. Lambing record 1,3.
2015 Black Agouti Blue (aka badgerface) quint genotype: Abl Ax Bb B? Joan Jett is Lady Grey x Jyrki. Joan Jett reminds us so much of her outstanding dam, Lady Grey. Strong top line, friendly attitude and a winner fleece. She is confirmed QR at codon 171 for scrapie resistance as well. Lambing record: 2,4.
2013 White Triplet ewe, Janna. Spot x Tuuli. Outstanding size and length on this ewe with the addition of a fabulous fleece and a ridiculous amount of milk production. I’m not kidding about her udder. If you want a sheep to milk, this bloodline might be just for you. Her sire was an exceptionally fast growing and great fleeced fella. All shepherds want a whole flock just like Janna. Mature weight 175 pounds. Lambing record: 2,3,3,3.
2015 Black Based Agouti Blue (aka badgerface) twin. Jackie is Jyrki x Brownie and is confirmed QR at codon 171 for scrapie resistance. Gorgeous fleece and nice topline on this young ewe. Brownie, her dam, has been a strong influence on our ewe flock due to her outstanding maternal instincts. Lambing record: 2,4
2012 White Triplet ewe out of Lumi x Juniper. Juniper was quite a sire and threw the most amazing fine fleece onto Zirconia. Year after year she has a consistent fine micron fleece AND she raises exceptional lambs with her outstanding milk production. She produces so much milk we use the extra milk some for farm products like sheep milk soaps well into the fall. Great length and depth on this ewe which she passes along to her lambs. Lambing record: unbred,3,4,4,3,3.
2014 Black based Agouti Blue( aka badgerface) triplet ewe that carries the brown color gene as well. Maarika is a strong well set ewe with an outstanding shoulder. She produces a very dark fleece that is the envy of all. She also has such amazing milk production you might think she was a dairy goat! Lambing record: unbred,4,5.
2014 Brown Piebald. Brown Cow has big round spots on her just like a cow (which you can just faintly see in her photo here). The tips of her brown wool areas sun fade and the white wool gets a little dirty. She starts to look uniform in color from a distance until you look closely. She passes this round edge spotting pattern along to some of her lambs too. She is a great wool producer from Tapio x Onyx. BOTH her parents were exceptional fine micron sheep. She has a more typical crimped fleece however, her luster and handle make her fleece a stand out and she passes wonderful fleece uniformity onto her lambs. Additionally,she lives up to the ‘cow’ part of her name as an ultra milky ewe. Lambing record: 1,4,1
2015 White triplet ewe sired by Chai out of Janna. It is no surprise this is a big ewe considering her parents are some of the largest finnsheep at POV farm. Genotype: Awt A? Bb B? Lambing record, 2,1.
2014 Brown Twin ewe ‘Helka’. She is sired by Villa out of Kalmia. Those are two amazing fleeced parents and Helka did not disappoint. She is a VERY fine micron finnsheep! Her Dam Kalmia also produced Janis, another fine micron ewe in the POV flock. Helka’s lambing record is 1,1,3. Each lambing her offspring have had the same very fine crimpy wool she has regardless of the ram she is bred to. Helka is available to purchase. A great addition to any flock that wants fine crimpy Point of View Farm bloodlines.
2013 Brown triplet ewe Tuuli. Tuuli is sired by Hawthorn out of Thuja. Her lambing record is 2,3,4,4. Great dam and amazing fleece. Like many Hawthorn sired lambs, her fleece is lightening with age while her legs and face are not. Thuja, her dam, is known for her exceptional mothering and friendly attitude. Hawthorn put a nice fleece onto this ewe. We are happy to have her continue these outstanding bloodlines in our flock. She is an excellent attentive mother who raised her quads this year with little assistance.
