Our breeding herd are registered with both the OEBR, Old English Babydoll SouthDown Sheep registry and NABSSAR, North American Babydoll SouthDown Sheep Association and Registry. We will be adding our sheep to the New BSSBA, Babydoll Southdown Sheep Breeders Association.
We started with Three lamb Ewe's, Raya, the black one is my bottle baby, Vicky and Liz are the royalty who are above following humans around. We expanded with a ram, Sammy, who did his job and we had three lambs the first year we let them together. Each of my ewes gave birth to a single girl. How we managed that I will never know... We added another ram in 2014, BlackJack from a fine line. In 2016 we added another ram Kronus from Fuller farms, and Ramsey from Fuller Farms in 2017.
Our flock has multiplied, we have 11 breeding ewes in 2017 and will expand to 16 when we can.
We chose the Babydoll for many reasons, it's size, the fact that it is a heritage breed, low maintenance, they tend to not eat mature trees and they are highly friendly. We have had them for only three years but have enjoyed all of it. The girls (all 11 of them now) were run around to each of our pastures, including our front yard to eat down the grass. You follow them through with a light mowing and water the heck out of it and you have beautiful lawn.
