This page is a memoriam and is dedicated to those good old friends who helped make Windswept Farms what it is today.
Bluff Country Apocolypse "Paco"

Northstar was our primary flock sire. He was a Black Blettet, Bleset twin ram. He was black with striking white "splash marks" on his face and some streaks of white in his wool. He had excellent conformation, long soft fleece, and classic spiraling Shetland horns that were very impressive. Northstar consistently gave us quality lambs with interesting facial markings and spotting characteristics.
Northstar produced a long line of champion rams and ewes, and had a tremendous positive influence on our flock. Northstar's name can be found in most Windswept pedigrees, and we are hoping his influence lives on in future generations. Northstar was bred to just three ewes his last fall before he was humanely euthanized.

Joshua was a large, long, moorit ram with excellent conformation. Joshua had an extremely uniform moorit fleece with a nice crimp. He retained his deep moorit color with no signs of iset (white fibers) or age-graying. Joshua had beautiful wideswept spiral horns and an excellent disposition. He was consistently producing offspring with his uniform fleece and awsome conformation right up until the end.
Joshua was Second Place Yearling Ram at the 2003 ISSBA Show

Mad Eye was a large-boned, long, powerful ram with long, primitive, dense fleece. He was a white and black yuglet flecket. He had medium-sized horns that spiraled well-away from his face. Mad Eye carried the moorit color and also the modifier that produced mioget/fawn and emsket/charcoal colored lambs. Mad Eye had an excellent fluke-shaped tail that was consistently passed on to his offspring and future generations - along with plenty of spots and patterns!
