the cutest little sheep on the planet
It did my heart good to see that the Olde English Babydoll Southdown sheep were represented at Garfield Farm's Rare Breeds Show. These docile little sheep are so happy looking. They have fine fleece but with my meager spinning talent I'd probably never be able to spin their wool into anything that resembles yarn.
The breeder was from nearby Hampshire, Illinois and she purchased her first ram from the exhibitor that was in attendance a couple years ago. If you've been reading for awhile you'll remember that those sheep each wore their own little red bandana.
