I’d like to buy 4-5 Karakul ewes. Looking for fattest tails and colored wool. Will buy, or trade for some of my Awassi cross ewes or rams (Karras bloodlines). Reason for the switch (Awassi to Karakul) is I’m not dairying, and Karakuls will better fit my goals. Otherwise, my girls are terrific.  Willowdale Farm    catherine.harrison@gmail.com

3/29/16     Kentucky

Good Morning, Would you be able to tell me if anyone in the Kentucky area or near the Kentucky area sells the meat from Karakul sheep, especially the fat-tail? I have contacted Kathy at Check-mate farm and she gave me a name of Elizabeth Ann Brown in Mt. Sterling. I could not find a number for her so I contacted the Kentucky Arts Association out of Berea, KY and left a message for her. She sells rugs and yarns through the Arts. I contacted Jennifer McLagan, Omar Wahdan, Letty, The Fat Ewe Farm, and Willowdale Farm. I still could not make any progress in locating a breeder or butcher. Any Assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.  Melissa Gerges   m.gerges@twc.com

3/28/16     Montana or Wyoming

Hi, I learned about the Karakul Sheep on the Livestock Conservancy website and Kathy from Checkmate Farm’s was kind enough to refer me to your site. Do you have any Karakul breeders in Montana or Wyoming? I will check out the Colorado Breeders as that would be our next closest.  Melissa Zimmermann  mzimmermba@aol.com

Hi, I am very interested in starting a herd of Karakul sheep on my 120 acres located near Sacramento in Northern California. Would you know of any sources in the area that has any sheep for sale? I grew up with this type sheep back in Iran in the seventies and now I would like to market this product to the very large population of Persians in CA   Moe Montazeri   moe@chilibarslate.com

1/15/16     Michigan (Western)

I am looking for a Karakul ram for my flock…. I am in west Michigan, do you know of any breeders in MI or northern IN? Registration does not really matter. It is important for the ram to have strong fat tail genetics. Thanks  Ben   2315633559@mms.att.net
