Getting Ready for the Classic

The All Canada Sheep Classic Show and Sale starts tomorrow and I am busy trying to get everything ready to attend.  I have booked space in the Trade Show and am hoping that being able to introduce breeders to BFL and Gotland fibre will be a good way to promote these breeds.

As always I am far behind schedule but am planning on getting a sales list and some pictures of available animals on the blog later today.  This year's lamb crop is very impressive and I have some very strong, growthy ewe and ram lambs for sale out of my AI son of Blue Dragon (UK) and also out of my own Ranfurly Norman ram (who is a grandson of the Gigrin Red Kite (UK) ram).

If you are planning to attend the Classic, please make time to stop and visit the farm.  We are located 10 minutes south of the Trans Canada Highway between Chase and Sorrento (turn off at Squilax as if going to the North Shuswap) and then make an immediate left on to the Turtle Valley/ Chase Creek Road. Stay on this road for approximately 5.5 kms.  Bailey Road is on the left - look for a directional arrow pointing to "Skimikin" as the road sign is a bit hard to see.  The farm is another 1.5 km down Bailey Road on the right hand side - watch for the Ranfurly Farm sign.  Please call first (250-679-2735).

See you at the Classic!
