This sweet face is from RAMBO - an amazing, proud, very big Southdown Ram that lived here at our farm. Southdown's were the first breed of sheep we added to the farm and I must say still hold a special place in my heart. We raised the Baby Doll variety - not the monsters they pass off now. That means they are to your knees and walk around with this grin on their faces all the time. .. The breed is known for the sweetest meat, the tightest fleece and even good milkers. Their wool was used for next to the skin stocking, and undergarments that required elastic properties. We brought this breed to our 4 H Fair and was laughed at because it was not the black faced sheep that only seemed to be raised anymore but over time we changed many a minds. So hugs and snugs to the memory of RAMBO.
