THE MINIATURE AND NOVELTY SHEEP BREEDERS ASSOCIATION AND REGISTRY
The Miniature and Novelty Sheep Breeders Association and Registry (M.N.S.B.A.R.) was originally envisioned by a small
but energetic group. As the interest in their miniature and novelty sheep grew so did the group's needs. People from all around the U.S. and Canada have shown
interest in a group such as this. Many breeds of sheep have a registration association, but none for the miniatures, toys or novelties breeds. They are becoming not
only more popular, but also more populace. Now is the time for a registry such as this to be formed.
There are a few breeders that have concentrated their programs on the small, miniature or novelty sheep breeds. These few breeders felt it was necessary to form
a registry for these sheep in order to document and provide for the survival of these sheep and/or breeds.
The purpose and intent of this registry is to preserve these little sheep and set them apart form the more common or larger "Standard size" sheep as exhibiting has
begun and interest in them is growing. Many of the small or novelty sheep breeds have no registry at all and we are here to help them start the process. Many
people have concentrated their efforts on the smaller sheep of their already registered flock that might have otherwise been lost. This causes loss of valuable
genetic and historical lineage. Some breeds may be already lost forever. We have a conservation plan for the many old heritage primitive or alternative sized sheep
that have no registry at this time. We offer a reliable way to record numbers, track histories, and keep and/or start pedigrees.
