Our herd of Babydoll Sheep are available for purchase.
Commonly referred to as Babydolls, these adorable sheep have captured the hearts of breeders and hobby farmers alike.
Our foundation herd of mock registered white, black and harlequin babydoll sheep put a smile on the faces of all who see them.
While our breeding program focuses on the ever popular harlequins our main goal has always been to produce family friendly babydolls with elite fleece and fiber characteristics.
About the Breed
Olde English “Babydoll” Southdowns are a miniature sheep who produce wool that is a hand spinner’s delight. Originally the small southdown was a popular dual purpose, meat and fiber breed. After the onset of world war I, the small sheep began to lose popularity for larger breeds and eventually the original lines almost became extinct.
The fleece of babydolls ranges from 19 to 25 microns and is super crimpy with a stable length of 2.5 to 3 inches. Dams are good mothers and easy birthers. The average birth is 1-2 lambs but 3 and even 4 are not unheard of. Lambs are born polled and do not have horns.
They provide organic weeding and can make excellent companion animals. The, now popular Babydolls, are also a sound investment opportunity for those interested in farming.
Ramikin is a lovely spotted Ram Lamb that we purchased from Sweet Water Farms in Maryland. He is a gorgeous boy with buttery fiber and such a love! We are excited to be adding him to our breeding program.
