Olde English Babydoll Southdown Sheep

 Old English "babydoll" Southdown sheep. Although the breed is known by many names, Old English Babydoll Southdowns, smiling sheep, teddy bear sheep, or simply Babydoll Southdowns, their smiling face will win your heart.  

 This breed can be traced back to the early 1800's in the United states. Trace them further and you will uncover a heritage breed from the south down hills of Sussex County England in the early 1700's.  The decline in later years was due to a desire for a larger sheep. The southdowns are larger and mainly used as a meat breed. The "babydoll" Southdowns are a smaller versatile breed derived from the original Old English Southdowns, with a soft loving personality.

   Babydolls are perfect for that small farm or homestead. Their amazing wool for those who spin, it runs 19-22 micron range. It also can be mixed with other wools.  Uses around the farm are helping control weeds and  fertilizing your land. We find these little sheep do not eat our trees but choose to stick to the weeds. Their size makes for a perfect  4-H project for those young farmers.  They also have an excellent table value with a taste beyond compare. 

  We started our flock in 2019 and strive to reach and maintain the breed standard. Our flock is currently both OEBSS and NABSSAR resisted . We hope to soon add the third BSSBA

   Height should be around 18 - 24 inches. Any less than 18" should be discouraged. Please check with the registries of your choice for a detailed description on their regulations.  NABSSAR allows for Off White and Black colors to be registered.  OEBSS and BSSBA allow for Off White, Black and Spotted to be registered. 

  Please feel free to contact or visit us and take a look at these sweet sheep.
