About Us

We live in the small farming community of Nokomis, located just west of Atmore, Ala. We started out with grade sheep to work (train) Australian shepherds and changed to registered Katahdin hair sheep.

We are down to 35 registered ewes, keeping the best moms and best hair coats and overall nicer ewes. Ninety-five percent of our ewes are A- or AA-hair coats. We've purchased sheep from Ed Martsolf as well as several from Ohio, Mississippi and Louisiana. Our goal is a worm resistant, A-coat, RR-typed herd. We have mostly QR and RR ewes and try to lamb each December, if not earlier (no later than January).

We started on the voluntary scrapie flock certification program in 2001 and are members of KHSI and the South Central Katahdin Hair Sheep Association. . For more information on our herd or available animals please email us.

We also own RICOCHET WORKIN DOGS ASCA- AKC Australian shepherds and ABCA-AKC Border Collies. We have shown and trialed our Aussies. We own Working Trial Champion Manchado Poco Buena and Ricochets Poco Fuego (has two majors toward his championship). We have puppies available occasionally. We still use our Aussies and Border Collies to work the sheep. They save time and energy, with less stress on us and the sheep. Workin dogs make penning and loading a breeze. We welcome visitors and are willing to help you learn about Katahdin sheep. Call or email any time. "
