Deciding what breed of sheep was right for us was a long process. We looked at the sheep breeds in our area, mostly Dorpers and commercial breeds, but what we were looking for was something special. Something unique.
When I came across a post of Harlequins and Babydoll Southdowns for sale I knew they were perfect. The only shock was the price tag on that flock. I went directly to the registry website, and contacted all of the other breeders in California. All only had lambs for sale, wethers, or none at all. I was not prepared to wait two years for lambs of my own.
I ended up finding this perfect trio, and had them trailered down from Oregon. I haven't looked back since. Everything about them is perfect for us. Their size, temperament and characteristics are just what I had always wanted and I look forward to the next generations of Babydoll Harlequin crossed sheep.
