Karakul Shepherds Alliance
  (as of August 18, 2020)

Breeders Directory available for download and printing

All North American shepherds of Karakul sheep, including Canadian breeders, 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. We would like to welcome Canadian shepherds to share with us—American and Canadian Karakul sheep are linked through the 1914 importations.

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 available for printing.

 Currently, the breeders listed have given permission to post their contact information publicly through the Alliance. We have over 80 US flocks confirmed. For names of other Karakul breeders please contact the Registrar.
