We got the notion that a website could serve the current and new Karakul breeders by providing an easy way to share information, advertise and find each other. If it works, it should result in making it easier for shepherds to continue their breeding efforts with new bloodlines; and we will hopefully end up with more Karakul sheep in this country.
We are interested in any ideas, suggestions, and requests that you might have regarding this project. Please connect with us via this Blog post by clicking on Leave a Comment above, or to email in private ~ firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!
