Karakul Shepherds Alliance

Breeders Directory ….is currently being updated, March 13, 2023. Please Leave a Reply at bottom to ask about breeders in your state or region.

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 a summary of Historic-Foundation bloodlines and explanations of MBC (Multi-Bloodline Composite), Isolated, or Line-bred Flock designations please see our Bloodlines page and the Traditional Flocks paper.

A specific directory for the Karakul Bloodlines Breeders is ….currently being updated, March 12, 2023.

 Currently, the breeders listed have given permission to post their contact information publicly through the Alliance. We have over 100 US flocks confirmed. For names of other Karakul breeders please contact Deborah Hunter, Registrar.
