Katahdin Hair Sheep

Wright Family Farm's Sheep Flock is 100% Katahdin.  We chose this breed for it's Hardiness, Low Maintence, Adaptability, Superior Lamb Crops, Meat Quality, Parasite Resistant, and absolutely No Shearing.  This is an all purpose sheep, for anyone, at any location, any time of the year.   Katahdin Hair Sheep were originally developed on the Piel Farm in north central Maine near Mt. Katahdin.  His purpose was to develop a new line of non-wool producing sheep (hair sheep) that would not require shearing, would prove hardy, reliable mothers, with good flocking instincts and high fertility.  For more information - see KHSI - http://KHSI.org
