Why Finnsheep??

People often ask us..... Why Finnsheep???  Finnsheep are probably the top dual purpose
breed in the world. They produce a delectable, mild flavored carcass that is equalled in
flavor by none. They have fast growing fleece that hand spinners love and that has luster
to it like no other breed. Finns are great milkers and are able to not only give birth to
large litters but if fed correctly, can raise them quite well. Finns are very prolific! Triples
and quadruplets are quite normal for Finns and unlike other sheep breeds they will breed
year round, meaning you will get 5 lamb crops within a three year period instead of just
the normal three, which results in higher lamb profits.

But more than anything else, Finns are WONDERFUL!!

Finns are the most people-oriented and friendliest of all sheep breeds! They LOVE their
humans!  If you are looking for a pet, a fiber producer or breeding stock that will turn a
quick profit for you, then you must consider Finns!  All our Finns here at Beau-Peeps are
handled from birth. They are cookie-trained and think of themselves as dogs rather than
sheep! They are the absolute comedians of the sheep world. Life is just so much more fun
and interesting when Finns are involved!  So we present to you.....

grow fleeces so fast that we
end up shearing them twice a

each time!

SHEEP FUN FACT

"Wool Strength" (also
known as tensile
strength) determines
wool's ability to
withstand processing.
Weaker wools produce
more waste in carding
and spinning.
SHEEP FUN FACT

"Wool Color" Indicates
whether wool is able
to be dyed in light
shades. Color may be
graded depending
upon the natural color,
impurities and various
stains present.
SHEEP FUN FACT

After shearing, the
fleece is "Skirted" to
remove excess
yuckiness, seed and
burrs etc. to leave the
fleece as reasonably
even as possible in
good respects.
SHEEP FUN FACT

Sheep have a strong
instinct to follow the
sheep in front of them.
When one sheep
decides to go
somewhere, the rest of
the flock usually
follows, even if it is not
a good "decision."

This leads many to
assume the sheep is a
"dumb" animal, which
it isn't. Nature has
provided them with a
strong "flocking"
instinct for their
survival. Sometimes a
little too strong!

This instinct is
"hard-wired" into
sheep. It's not
something they "think"
about.
SHEEP FUN FACT

Because sheep brains
possess many
similarities to the
human brain, their
frontal cortex is
relatively developed.
When studies were
done on sheep to see
whether or not they
could learn complex
new sets of tasks, even
as the rules kept
changing frequently,
the sheep adapted.

Rats and other small
animals weren’t able
to fulfil these complex
tasks in numerous
studies.
SHEEP FUN FACT

If you make a sheep
mad, chances are they
won’t forget it. They
can even remember an
event or a face for
over two years. They
have a strong bias for
their own breed of
sheep. They don’t like
to be with sheep of
other breeds, families,
or of large age
differences. Fighting
amongst sheep is
prevented or at least
lowered in frequency
when the gender of
the sheep are mixed.
SHEEP FUN FACT

Along the same lines of
self-preservation,
sheep know their
plants. They have
preferences for certain
plants in regards to
sex, age, and if they
are pregnant.
SHEEP FUN FACT

Long after a ram has
been separated from
ram friends,  and/or
the loss of life of a
fellow ram, other rams
will mourn the loss of
that ram. Their social
lives are quite
sophisticated.
