Valais Blacknose Sheep

Valais Blacknose Sheep are felt to be some of the cutest sheep in the world.  These friendly sheep originated from the Valais region of Switzerland. Currently there are no 100% Valais Blacknose Sheep in the U.S. So, domestic sheep are being bred with 100% Valais Blacknose Sheep semen.  We are part of this breed-up program and currently have 3 F1 sheep (meaning 50% Valais).  In the summer of 2020, we welcomed two F2 Valais Blacknose Sheep.  Fraya and Fiona.  They are 75% Valais Blacknose Sheep and 25% Scottish Blackface Sheep. Fraya and Fiona had lambs in 2021.  These three lovely ewes are F3 Valais Blacknose Sheep, meaning 87.5% Valais.  We look forward to continuing in the breed-up program.

We have three different types of sheep bred to the Valais Blacknose Sheep – Teeswater, Gotland, and Scottish Blackface.  The Teeswater sheep originate from Teesdale, England.  They are a longwool breed of sheep, which produce large-diameter fiber.  They are known to be among the most docile breeds of sheep.  Gotland sheep are originally from Sweden.  They are known for having slender legs and fine, long and dense wool. The Scottish Blackface originate from the border region of Scottland and are known to have long wool.

Babydoll Sheep

Babydoll sheep are known as the smiling sheep.  They just make us happy.  Their official name is Olde English Babydoll Southdown Sheep.  They are a heritage breed originating from Susssex County, England.  They were imported into the United States in the early 1800s.  Originally, they were bred with larger sheep to be more industrial and known as Southdown sheep.  However, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Rober Mock worked to standardize find bloodlines from the original Southdowns, preserve their small size, and save the small sheep from extinction. To distinguish the smaller heritage breed of sheep from the larger modern Southdowns, they were called Olde English Babydoll Southdown Sheep.  In the 1980s there were only 350 Babydoll sheep, now there are tens of thousands. These sheep grow on average 24 inches tall.  They make excellent pets and companions.
