About the Hamner
Hamner Livestock raises Columbia Sheep in Pinedale Wyoming. Hamner’s recieved their first Columbia flock from Scotty Plattes in Lyman, Wy. Alan Hamner raised a small flock of Columbia sheep for his 4-H and FFA project. His younger sister Tanya grew to loving the sheep and took over showing them. The Hamner’s have shown the sheep all over at state and National fairs. Hamner’s have always felt an importance on keeping the orginal bloodlines in their flock and making sure their sheep produce quality wool. In 2013 the Hamner’s decided to add to their Columbia’s a Natural Colored Columbia Ram. To this day the Hamner’s raise both white Columbia’s and Natural Colored Columbia’s.
