Sheltering Pines is 36 acres out of an original 80 acre family farm located in Allegan Michigan. I raise Shetland sheep - all colors/markings/patterns. I started raising Shetlands in 1996 with my friend, Bill Eatmon. I knew that spotted shetlands were our favorite from the beginning and started out immeditately to collect spotted genetics from all over the country. We are NASSA Flock #417. I enjoy visitors and love showing them our Shetland sheep.
Due to the shearer having the flu and needing to go to the ER room our shearing on March 2 had to be postponed. He was able to reschedule for March 8th. The girls were already in the "rise" so I was very happy to get the job done.
Thankfully the weather was great and I was even able to let the flock outside for 2 days after shearing. We're getting snow today though and I have them locked inside the barn as the wind is pretty high and the wind chill lower than I want them subjected to.
