    Or Swap - Black merino rams

    Four black rams with decent horns. Clean ears , tails , unshorn , nice horns. Approx three years old. Live on a farmlet but definately not pets.

    For sale or happy to entertain swapping for venison meat animals , interesting .22 rifles or whatever else you have that I might "need".

    Will get some pics up tomorrow - its dark and they are black so night time pics look a bit like this -

    More Pitt Island black . I didnt keep any ram that had white on him. So they are pretty much all black , rather than the Arapawa type.

    Lots of black and spotty lambs in the paddock from these guys though.

    Mickey, are these the same breed as the flock thats running round in the south island? Clarence/Marlborough area?

    scottyrees....could well be if they are from origonal stock....or more likely they are domestic stock that didnt get mustered in...either way they will still do the funky chicken and produce tasty offspring.... we found with our feral lot they prefer to eat docks and weeds than good grass,so are plurry awesome for cleaning up funny wee corners etc,they rather fond of munching on trees etc too so have to be a little careful.
