I am in the slow process of closing down my permaculture operation in California, and starting a new farm elsewhere. I've started putting my animals for sale locally, but also wanted to list them here... I can provide more pictures and information if you email me or PM me.

Yaks - Herd of 7 yaks... Bull is proven sire 5 years old. Two heifers 6 and 4 years old. Three young bulls of 2 and 1 years old. And a brand new baby I have been able to check the gender. Asking $15,000

Emus - A breeding pair of emus, that supposedly have produced offspring on their own with a previous owner. Beautiful and really tame. I can pet both of them, and hand feed them. Good coyote protection! Asking $500.

Sheep - Painted Desert Sheep (a shedding breed). I have 3 ewes all less than 3 years old, and a beautiful ram with large horns. Two babies born last week making for 6 sheep available for sale. These animals were my favorite of all the critters Ive raised on the farm. Asking $1,300.

Goats - Pair of bottle-raised Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats (3 years old). The female has produced twins every 9 months, and lots of milk. Sale includes one of their daughters born this spring. Asking $500

Pigs - Gloucester Old Spots and Pot-Belly - I have two pink females of the Old Spot variety, one male Pot Belly who is really tame and friendly as he was raised in a house in the city for the beginning of his life. And two of their offspring (1 year old, and 3 months old). All trained to follow me around with feed, and are easy to move around the property. Asking $1,200 for all 5 pigs.

Dogs - Anatolian Shepards. I have a 2 year old female (fixed) I am reluctantly parting with. She comes from a line of working dogs and has spent all
her days protecting my flock and sleeping with the livestock. She is also trained to work on an overhead run-line. I bred her with my Poodle/German Shepard, and have held on to 2 of the puppies. They have spent their days guarding the livestock like mom. They are currently 9 months old. Asking $900 for the mom, $500 for each boy.

Horse - 3 year old Red Dun. Has been closely exposed to all of my various farm animals. I train her a little everyday. She has not been saddled or ridden yet. Asking $1,000

Llamas - family of 4.  *** sold

I am willing to split up some of the families if you are interested in one or two specific animals, we can work that out! Looking forward to sending these critters off to their next home!

Wow, Emu would be cool, but I don't think they like snow. . .
