Our family has been raising registered Old English Babydoll Southdown sheep for over twenty years. We breed for excellence in conformation and mothering ability/udders. We also like a good fleece. We have sheared, carded, spun, and knitted their wool, milked them and made various cheeses, and butcher lambs for our freezers each year. We also sell breeding stock to help other producers start or strengthen their flocks.
Our flock was established by Janette in the mid-90s with a pair of sheep which were part of the foundation flock when the classic-style Southdowns were renamed Babydolls and established as a breed. It is now managed by us, Ben and Laura, Janette and Bill’s son’s family. Lambing happens at our place, 5 miles west of the home farm. The flock has really grown on us, both literally and figuratively, since the shepherding torch was passed to us a few years back.
We are members of both the North American Babydoll Southdown Sheep Registry (NABSSAR) and the Olde English Babydoll Registry (OEBR):
We expect to have lambs available each year. Lambing will be in April; weaning in July.
