Babydoll Sheep: the Perfect Miniature livestock

Babydoll sheep are hearty and peaceful additions to our small hobby farm. They are easy to handle due to their size and temperament and cost little to feed. De-worming every three months, along with trimming hooves are a must as is their once a year shearing.

Babydolls make great 4H project animals as more and more are born to this recovering rare breed. Although it may be difficult to find shows to enter these sheep in, small groups are springing up, increasing their popularity.

Please visit my blog for answers to your questions about buying, raising and breeding Babydoll Southdown sheep - the "smiling teddy bear" sheep.
