The Navajo-Churro descended from sheep brought to the American Southwest by Don Juan Onate over four hundred years ago. These sheep were used to feed and clothe the conquistadors and Spanish settlers. By the 17th Century the churro had become vital to the people of the upper Rio Grande Valley. Native Indians acquired flocks of these sheep and within a century these churro sheep had become a major economic asset for the Navajo, or Dine' people. Meat, milk, and wool from these sheep sustained the Dine' for centuries. Renowned for its hardiness and versatility, these sheep survived several government-sponsored efforts to eradicate the breed. First, in the 1860's, as an effort to subjugate the Navajo people, and again in the early 1900's as part of a livestock reduction program, the US government nearly destroyed the native Navajo-Churro sheep. Through great effort by the Dine' people and others, the flocks were restored and the sheep were saved from extinction. Although still listed with the Livestock Conservancy as threatened, the numbers have rebounded enough to maintain a healthy breeding population. 


At Red Feather Ranch we strive to produce high quality breeding stock with excellent fleeces in a variety of natural colors favored by handspinners. We currently have two breeding rams, ROB Cliffhanger, and baw Aragorn.  Our breeding stock is registered with the Navajo-Churro Sheep Association. For more information and many more candid shots of our sheep we invite you to visit our sheep Facebook page at Red Feather Navajo Churros.
