Valais Blacknose Sheep
We are pleased to announce our partnership with Camanna's Petite Paradise! Do to our recent move to AZ, Anna and her family are housing our VBN project and working with us to continue our mission of developing this amazing breed in the US!! We look forward to sharing . SEE FOR SALE PAGE FOR CURRENT AVAILABILITY!
We are excited about our big project here at Foxglove Farm! We have become involved in the Valais Blacknose breed-up program, using imported semen from the UK from high quality, handsome Valais Blacknose Sheep rams. VBNs barely exist in the US- we were part of the very first importation of these gorgeous creatures' genetics, and we will be getting beautiful F4 (15/16 pure) in 2023. We are in love with the real VBN look coming through!!! Eventually, after upbreeding for multiple generations from Finn foundation stock, we will have purebred Valais Blacknose Sheep available!! We also have Bram, our purebred VBN ram, giving us beautiful lambs soon! Photos below are from the Laparascopic Artificial Inseminations of our ewes. Our stock is registered with the VBSS.
