WILD 'N' WOOLLY
COOPWORTH SHEEP

COOPWORTH RAMS MM#672/83 ("Valentino") AND MM#653/83 ("Cassanova") were direct sons of New Zealand CSSNZ registered ewes imported by Jonathan May of Timberville, Virginia...ewes we 'inherited' or bought, and kept here at Wild 'n' Woolly until their demise. I could not help myself, and so, gave the rams 'names of interest'!  They were sired by Jonathan's CSSNZ imported ram MM#1076/76. Valentino sheared a massive 24 lbs. of wool his second shearing; Cassanova 23 lbs.  I still am in awe of these two foundation Wild 'n' Woolly rams.  They were built like "tanks".  They were (and are) the standard we maintained in our efforts to produce highly prolific, well-fleeced, strong bodied, sound COOPWORTH SHEEP. 


Below is pictured our three year old ram, "Othor", named for the farmer who preceded us here at Wild 'n' Woolly.  Othor's flock no: WW#042/17 identified him as "Crackers" WW#0241/10's triplet from  "Cookie's" ewe - heritage bloodline.  Cookie, MM#40/83, was one of our 10 F1 foundation ewes purchased from Jonathan May in 1984. He sheared a 9 month fleece of 16 lbs. in February this year.  He is a tank!  His highly lustrous, well defined, evenly crimped, long stapled, extremely white fleece is pictured below--much of it was selected for use as white locks and the remaining parts, dyed spruce green and chocolate browns.  He has been SOLD to Joy and Lance Schreck of Bunker Hill, WV.  He is pictured with his son, "Lancelot", WW#64/19, in the background.


LEGENDARY
COOPWORTH SHEEP LOCKS!

From Our Sheep-Processed by the Wild 'n' Woolly Elves-just for 'Ewe"!
We Breed Wools for Softness, Luster, Whiteness, and Well-Defined 'Character', and, in no way, sacrifice our sheep's conformation, ease of lambing, foraging ability or hardiness.

*Mattie (pictured with the red bow in the header) was a triplet we supplementally bottle fed as a lamb.  She stayed with her mom and siblings, but was quite the 'dog' -- always first to the feeder, following us wherever we were in the pasture.  I don't remember the names I give to our sheep as they are uniform enough in appearance now that I do not recognize everyone without referring to their ear tag number, but Mattie stood out.  She just did.  She passed away April a year ago, after having raised more lambs than most, given a 250% lifetime production lambing record.  We kept several daughters and granddaughters.  This photo was used as our Christmas card her yearling year in 2010.  She is missed.  There will never be another "Mattie"--either sheep or the woman she was named after, the woman who sold me this farm in 1981, who worked harder than most men, raised 6000 chickens, milked cows, lambed out 200 ewes, she and her husband having worked this farm with horses...and raised 5 boys here!  None of the 5 were interested in continuing the legacy. We are privileged to have the honor!
