Lulu is the biggest and boldest and therefore the leader of the group, always the first out to pasture and the first to the feed trough. Daisy is the smallest and most timid and loves to be held and petted. Buttercup and Static follow Lulu. All four are very vocal and greet us with loud baas – always hopeful for more food or to be let out to graze.
The original miniature Southdown sheep originated on the South Down hills of Sussex County, England in the 1700s. In 1986-91, after becoming almost extinct, 350 sheep with the original bloodlines were located and a registry was formed to keep the line pure. The name Olde English Babydoll Southdown can only be used for sheep that have been accepted by the registry. The lambs are registered with an ear tag number, which you can see in photos of our sheep.
Babydolls are outstanding pets that produce fleece that is in the class of cashmere, a hand spinner’s delight. They provide organic weeding and make excellent companion animals. Their gentle nature makes them a joy to own!
Be sure to see all the products that feature our favorite animals as "cover girls" and "cover guys."
