Maykduranch, LLC raises White and Registered Colored Merino Sheep ranging in age from 1 year to 8 years old. My flock is 100% Merino with the exception of one Ewe that was donated to me. She is a 3 year old 50-50 Merino/CVM cross. My fleeces range from White to Black, with Silver, Mauve, Chocolate and other shades. I currently have 16 Ewes and 12 Rams. I have been told to cut back so will sell some of the flock if that opportunity presents itself.
In 2018 I took 23 fleeces to the Estes Park Wool Market for judging and came home with 9 ribbons. I was hoping I might get a couple, so was surprised at how well my fleeces did.
This is a one person operation, with help when I can get it. I enjoy my sheep and make sure they are healthy and well taken care of. It is truly a Labor of Love.
**I have some fleeces that are at a Mill for processing and should be available in a few weeks.**
