February's Farm Friend of the Month!
This is "Belle"! She started it all on the farm. I was gifted her and 3 other sheep some years back and she is the matriarch of my "Babydoll" line. She is an Olde English "Babydoll" Southdown sheep. I currently have 4 generations, with hopefully the 5th generation arriving next month.
She is a bit of a stinker though. She has taught all the others to begin hollering for their morning rations at 5:30 a.m. each day. Old Belle is going to be 12 this year and we hope she will slow down that nonsense but it seems she has taught the others to do the same! Always kind to the others and will often take on baby sitting the new lambs. Belle is retired from breeding and is enjoying just laying back except when it comes to breakfast!
