Updated: Novenber 16, 2014Hello to all of the Babydoll Southdown sheep lovers. We are well underway into the new breeding season and very much looking forward to the 2015 Spring Lambing. The moms and dads are doing very well. There is a chill in the air the sheep just love. Not me so much, but the sheep love it. At this time we are still collecting a few more deposits for our 2015 lambs season. We are welcoming a number of new customers into the Sweetwater Family. But it is not to late and you still have some time to get your deposit in. But please do not wait to long because Mother Nature as always is the boss and she decides on what lambs we get each year. The longer you wait, the slimmer your chances are on that lamb your hoping for. As you can see we are counting the days until the start of the 2015 Lambing season. Every year someone always waits until it's to late and misses out. Don't let that be you this year. As always we will place the rams together with their selected ewes October 1st and as of this update we are one month into the new breeding season.
We wanted to provide these short YouTube videos to give you an idea what our lambing time is like for us as well as the joy these little lambs bring into our lives.
Please feel free to contact us anytime you have any questions about our Babydoll Southdown Sheep, or you would like to visit our farm and meet them in person.
Thank you very much and please enjoy our website...
Babydoll Southdown sheep and lambs, or their more formal name Old English Southdown sheep have been a wonderful addition to our family and can be a wonderful addition to your family that will give you years of pleasure. We apply only the best in breeding practices making every attempt to enhance the best qualities the Babydoll Southdown sheep are known for and at the same time keeping the bloodlines far apart producing healthy Babydoll lambs.
When we started our flock of Babydoll Southdown sheep and anytime we add new sheep or lambs to our flock we handpick what we consider to be the best. We continue to search out and only accept into our Babydoll sheep breeding program the Babydoll sheep and lambs with good dispositions, conformation, fiber quality,color, and most of all a healthy history. We do our best to only own and breed Babydoll Southdown sheep that represent the best in breed qualities.
Our flock of Babydoll Southdown sheep is made up of colors ranging from natural color blacks that are harder to find in the Babydoll Southdown sheep. The natural dark colors rang from Dark black to a light cream and dark rich looking natural browns. We also have a few white Babydoll Southdown sheep and we are starting to breed Spotted Babydoll Southdown sheep to get the beautiful spotted Babydoll lambs many people are looking for. All of our Babydoll Southdown sheep and the new Babydoll lambs are registered with the original Old English Southdown Sheep Registry that Mr. Robert Mock started in 1991.
Our flock of Old English Babydoll sheep and Babydoll lambs share our pastures and get along very well with our horses and goats. Babydoll lambs do their best and must be in a flock of two or more, but do to their gentle nature Babydoll lambs get along very well with other animals.
What I feel sets us apart from other Babydoll Southdown sheep breeders is our “after the sale” support we continue to provide to our customers after they bring home their new Babydoll lambs. We feel it is very important for a Babydoll lamb breeder to be there for their customers to answer questions that may come up about the Babydoll lambs. And there will be questions.
After you bring your new Babydoll lambs home we will be just a phone call away when you need us. Babydoll Southdown Sheep have been a wonderful part of our farm and Babydoll lambs will be a wonderful addition to your family as well. Our after the sale support will be the icing on the cake that will make owning your Babydoll lambs that much easier. We want you as the new owner to do well and to fully enjoy you Babydoll lambs. But there will always be a part of us that will consider your Babydoll lambs as our Babydoll lambs and we will always want the best for them.
We have been told by our customers that good Babydoll Southdown Sheep breeders are very hard to find. I can tell you our Babydoll lambs went to homes in Pennsylvania, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Ohio, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, Connecticut, Virginia, West Virginia, Georgia, Massachusetts, Vermont, Indiana, Michigan, California, New Hampshire, and Maryland.
People often ask me what is the most important thing to look for when shopping for their first Babydoll lambs. I tell them that after you decide to move forward and get some Babydoll Southdown Sheep or Babydoll Lambs of their own, the most important thing to look for is not the color, look, or the price of the Babydoll lambs. The most important thing they want to find is good Babydoll lamb breeder that will be their for them if they ever need help. It is hard to understand how very important the breeder is unless you need their advice or help and you do not have it.
We are located in north east Carroll County Maryland just 20 miles north of Baltimore and 25 miles south of York Pennsylvania.
We are now accepting deposits for the upcoming Babydoll lambing season. Please give us a call if we can answer any questions about our Babydoll Southdown Sheep or Babydoll Lambs. Also please feel free to let us know if you would like to visit Sweetwater Farm and meet the Babydoll Southdown Sheep in person.
Please enjoy the pictures of our Babydoll Southdown Sheep and information you find on our web site.
