We would like to welcome everyone to this years National Oxford Show and Sale.  We are proud of the selection of sheep we are bringing for your inspection.  We have drastically cut the size of our ewe flock, so our consignment is smaller than usual.  I want to thank all who have inquired about sheep now and in the past.  We appreciate the traffic we have had this spring and want to thank our buyers off the farm as well as those who may purchase sheep in the past, and those that will at the sale.  

Shelley is putting the finishing touches on her painting "Guarding the Wee Ones" that will be auctioned off this year at the Oxford Auction sale day.  All proceeds will go to support of the National Junior Show this year.  If you think her original artwork for our junior members has been special in the past, this year's portrait is a "classic".  

Have a safe trip to and from the sale! God's speed!
