Little Hooves Romneys of New Jersey will be donating a white ewe lamb for raffle this year (2018) that will benefit ARBA’s youth. All proceeds will be ear marked for two specific Junior shows, the All American Jr Show and NAILE’s JR Show. Raffle tickets will be sold starting immediately and will continue through until the North East Regional Romney Show in West Springfield, MA (BigE) on September 24th, 2018. Let’s rally together and show support for our ARBA youth.
The Raffle tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. Anybody wishing to buy or help sell tickets can contact Charlene Carlisle (Little Hooves Romneys) at 856-866-1747 (home) or 609-760-0399 (cell) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Any help would be greatly appreciated. The financial cost of these youth shows are minimal compared to what our youth get in return, however the expense still has to be covered. In past years, donations and raffle sales have supported these shows for our kids and with the help from the Board of Directors, the membership and the public, I feel it can be done again. Please open your hearts and your wallet for this event but if unable to, then show your support by assisting with sales. I will be making up packets with pictures, info and raffle tickets that can be sent directly to your home, everyone has neighbors and friends that would want to buy tickets to help our youth and the future of ARBA.

Since 2007, prominent Oxford Breeders have donated lambs to establish a Foundation Flock. The Foundation Flock is given annually to establish one new Oxford Flock. The flock consists of quality Registered Oxford ewes and one Registered Oxford ram.
To win the award flock, you must write an essay to the Oxford Foundation Flock Award Committee. Include information about yourself, illustrate your goals and intentions with the animals should you win the award. Please type your essay and e-mail it to email@example.com by May 18. Kindly include your mailing address and phone number.
The only request we ask of the Winner is to donate one ewe lamb within the first three years to a Foundation Flock. The Winner will be invited to attend the National Oxford Sale at Springfield, Illinois to receive their award. If you cannot attend, other arrangements to receive the flock will be made. Good Luck!
I am moving from Coopersburg PA to Oregon and cannot take my 3 Scottish Blackface Sheep. They will be 3 years old in the spring and are in excellent health. Can you you help me find a good home for them? They are siblings, very friendly and gentle for scotties.
The return of the geep: two years on. By Amy McShane on 29 January 2016
It’s been almost two years on from the birth of the sheep-goat hybrid.
A farm in Kildare is home to the geep, who was born in March 2014. Owner of the farm Paddy Murphy said at the time that “it had all the hallmarks of a goat. He looks like a goat trapped in a lamb’s body.”
