How We Name Our Sheep

NASSA requires each registered Shetland Sheep to have a unique name or number. It can be quite a challenge naming 30 to 40 registered lambs each year! Though,with three children and two adults things can get pretty interesting.

At Windswept Farms, we choose a different "theme" for lamb names every year. Not only are the themes fun and entertaining, but they allow us to quickly identify the age of a particular animal. Here are our past themes:

1994-Candy
1995-Flowers
1996-Disney
1997-Fairy Tales
1998-Star Trek Characters
1999-Planets
