Welcome to ISBONA

The purpose of the Icelandic Sheep Breeders of North America is to preserve and protect the purebred Icelandic sheep breed in North America; to facilitate registration and pedigree information for the breed; to provide information about Icelandic sheep to the general public and to facilitate the exchange of information between members and breeders. ISBONA also promotes the special attributes and products of these unique sheep. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in supporting our mission. You do not even need to own sheep!

ISBONA will be the official breed association for 2019 for US Icelandic sheep registrations. We are beginning our final transition now with CLRC which means we are freezing our membership for a brief period. If you need registry services, please check with CLRC. They will be able to guide you. Remember this is for US breeders only. Canadian breeders will continue to use CSBA.

7/6/2109: CLRC has completed loading all pedigree and membership files. You can compare listings between CSBA and ISBONA by accessing your flock via the Registry Search function. Please note that ISBONA members now have two CLRC membership numbers. Directions for accessing both registries can be found under the Registering Your Sheep tab in the Icelandic Breed of Sheep menu above. Please also note: Duplicate Progeny entries are a known problem for all, and CLRC will be resolving. If you have questions, please contact admin@isbona.com. Thanks!

7/11/2019: With thanks to member Jill Merkel for her suggestion, we have some materials for Junior Exhibitors which might help address registration delays affecting your ability to enter shows. Please see the download here.
