When we first decided to make our start with a small Icelandic
Sheep Flock, we had a difficult time finding all the
information we needed like;
What are the characteristics of a quality Icelandic sheep?
How to identify & breed for the different colors and patterns?
How to successfully market our sheep and their products?
What is involved in milking Icelandic Sheep?
How to properly identify and tag our lambs?
Later it came time to "name" our first years lambs. We needed
help deciphering what can appear as
complicated names and codes.
The most informative site, by far, that we have found to date is
the Tongue River Farm website
owned by the late Susan Briggs and preserved by her children to
provide this wealth of information to others who are interested
in this valuable, multi-purpose, heritage breed,
for which we are extremely grateful .
We have also found the following websites to have some
interesting & helpful articles & information about owning,
raising, breeding, and enjoying Icelandic Sheep.
