Below you will find a sampling of 2007 wethers available from

Chestnut Springs Farm

If you are interested in purchasing a show wether project we do require a deposit equaling 1/3 down or $50.00 per wether.  Those paying deposits will get first choice.  All wethers will be disbudded and banded before leaving the farm.  They will also be wormed and vaccinated. 

Wether prices average from $150.00 to $200.00 each for top of the line Show wethers. We choose wethers that are long bodied and very leggy.  They must be wide in the chest floor with a tubular body and muscled rear end.

We feel that our prices are very fair compared to most of the country and only choose wethers that can compete in the biggest and best shows.  If you see something you like, please call and reserve.  We will hold the animal for five days which will allow plenty of time to mail your deposits.

All depopsits are non-refundable, unless something should happen to the animal in which a deposit has been made.

Please understand that farming is a full time job and that we make many sacrifices in order to make these nice animals available to our customers.

We appreciate your business!!
