The babydoll sheep are by far the favorite on our small hobby farm. Known for their 'smile' because of their wide mouth you can't help but smile back every morning when you go outside and they greet you for the day! Their short little legs make them excellent lawn mowers that fertilize as they go with pellets, not big gross poop to step on and track in! Many farms use them in vineyards and orchards because they are too short to eat the fruit but they naturally keep the ground free of weeds. They are very gentle natured and easily halter trained. When they do get really mad all they can do is stomp, which just makes you laugh! Unfortunately this makes them susceptible to predators. Good fences, guard dogs or herd protectors such as donkeys or llamas are recommended. They are an ancient breed from the South Down Hills of Sussex County in England. This makes them less susceptible to diseases that effect newer breeds of sheep such as foot rot and internal parasites. These miniature sheep were nearly extinct in the mid 1900's because although their meat is a delicacy their size was undesirable for meat supply and demand. Today with the growing popularity of organic farming these sweet little guys are making a huge come back. Sheering is done once in the spring, but their wool is excellent for hand spinners, classified with cashmere wools. As long as your HOA allows it these guys are wonderful for even much smaller suburban lots! Though they are herd animals so they cannot be alone, they always need at least one partner.
