I actually acquired my sheep (I think they are Dorset’s) by accident. I was putting my cattle onto a friends property, and they needed shearing, so he gave them to me. So I had them shawn and now when they hear my voice they come running to wherever I am. There are 4 Ewes and 1 Ram, they are all very quiet and in early June 2009 one of the ewes gave me twin lambs - 1 boy & 1 girl! My grandchildren love them as they are so cute, but growing like wildfire.
When I opened my animal section at the nursery I needed some quiet baby lambs to put with my baby Alpacas and Dexter steers, so another friend of mine gave me 4 Dorper female lambs. As one of them had been bottle reared, she is so quiet. She is chocolate colour with white socks so the kids call her Socks. One of the others is white, and the other two have brown and white patches. Once again there are many of our customers' kids who have actually never seen these baby animals.
