Acquired: Breeder (non-professional, hobby breeder)

We knew nothing about sheep. We'd viewed them from afar and thought they had no real personality.How wrong we were.We raised Bambam from a baby,bottle feeding her and she became a friendly,incredibly calm sheep.She got on well with everyone,people and other animals. She even ran from the top of the paddock to the bottom fence whenever she saw our car return home,in order to say hello.
In terms of cost and so forth: Bambam was shorn once a year. She was very fit and healthy.She never suffered from any illness. We weren't interested in her meat as the thought of killing her was too much for us. Her wool,however,was good quality and we had no problems selling her fleece for a good price.
She really cost us very little.
A great breed.
