Icelandic, Crossbred and Jacob Sheep - none of our Jacobs are currently registered, though they are descended from JSBA Registered stock.

Dapper Dan (2008 Ram, 2-horn) - $125 - Laffing Horse Betelgeuse X Laffing Horse Basil - Dan is our current herdsire and sire of many beautiful ewes who are staying in the flock. Among them are First, Flora, Fiona, Grace, Greta. His lambs are so well-marked and have such nice fleeces that we have kept some of his sons as fiber wethers - Flash, George and Nibbles. His daughter Filigree is also for sale.

Laffing Horse Cocoa (2007 Ewe, 2-horn) - $125 - Stapleton Farm Homer X Laffing Horse Bobbin - Cocoa is a big chocolate colored ewe who lambs easily and grows a good 8 lb fleece every year. She is currently bred to Dapper Dan for early April lambs.

Laffing Horse Dorie - (2008 Polled Ewe) - $125 - Stapleton Farm Homer X Laffing Horse Cowslip - This spotted ewe grows a thick 8-plus pound fleece. She is a good mother and was bred to Dan for late March lambs.

Laffing Horse Mouse - $75 - (2007 fiber wether, scurred) - Stapleton Farm Homer X Laffing Horse Button, This large dark brown half-jacob, half-corriedale wether has been a family pet all his life. His heavy fleece is medium-fine and spins up nice for outerwear.

Havencroft Filigree - $75 - (2010 Four-horned ewe) - Dapper Dan X Laffing Horse Clementine - Filigree has not been sheared yet, but looks like she will have a nice fairly fine fleece. She has broken all of her horns and one time or another, so they are different sizes.

Chalcedony - $125 - (two-horned white Icelandic) - Currently bred to Dan for April lambs. We bought this ewe in 2007, right after we moved to Arkansas. She was young then, perhaps a two year old. She has a very nice double-coated fleece and needs to be sheared twice a year. She really needs to be in a flock that is on pasture, she gets way too fat on our regimen of grass hay and some grain.

Dorie’s Boy or Cowslips Boy - (2010 2-horned wethers) $75 ea. after shearing. These two jacob wethers have nice fleeces and have been raised without antibiotics.

Do you know of any Nubian goat owners in the Mountain View area that have a breeding buck? I will need a buck this fall, but I don't want to buy one yet.

I don't know of any Nubian breeders in Mountain View right now. I'll keep an ear out. I am considering a buck from Hoyt Farms in DeQueen, AR, but I haven't decided if I want to go Nubian or Saanen for our commercial dairy herd.
