Karakul Shepherds Alliance
  (as of August 16, 2019)

A Breeders Directory is available for download and printing.

All North American shepherds of Karakul sheep are welcome to be listed here, by either using the online Farm & Flock Finder or filling out the Farm & Flock Finder form and mailing to the Alliance.

No fee is required and you do not need to register individual sheep to have your flock listed. If you have just found us, please email or text photos of your sheep. We love Karakul photos!

* For an explanation of MBC (Multi-Bloodline Composite), Isolated or Line-bred Flock designations please see our Traditional Flocks paper under the Registry tab, or email or call for one.

* For a summary of Historic-Foundation bloodlines please see the Bloodlines page on the Alliance website.

A specific directory for the Karakul Bloodlines Breeders is available for printing.
