Navajo Churro Sheep

Our interest in Navajo Churro sheep began about 20 years ago. A dual-purpose, primitive breed, Navajo Churro sheep have adapted to the variable and challenging climate of the Southwest. We started with two ewe lambs purchased from Sarah Natani, a prominent Navajo weaver, in 1996. In 1998, we began our breeding program with the use of a ram from the Navajo Sheep Project. We have an entire rainbow of fleece colors. The wool is wonderful used in weaving and locker hooking. Registerable breeding stock is available on a limited basis.

More information about Navajo Churros can be found on the Navajo Churro Association website.  The American Livestock Breeds Conservation lists the Navajo Churro as a "threatened" breed.
