We can't wait for spring lambs, can you?
Welcome to Forever Farms! We are a small 23 acre farm in Culpeper County, Virginia, established in April 2011. Our main focus is our growing OEBSR, NABSSAR & BSSBA registered Babydoll Southdown flock. The first sheep came home October 2011. Our slowly expanding flock currently consists of six rams and twenty-one ewes. The flock is pastured year round, they have baking soda and loose sheep minerals always available, they are free fed mixed grass hay in October and November. Whole flock is moved out to winter grazing in December. Expecting ewes are fed supplementary sheep pellet from roughly February through early April. Lambs have creep feed available to help make them more friendly for new owners.
As of autumn 2019, we have six breeding rams, all of which are registered with at least two of the three registries. There are currently twenty-one ewes, with all being dual registered. We have a genetically varied breeding flock from several places in Virginia, Maryland, South Dakota, California, North Carolina, Missouri, Ohio & Kentucky! We are always looking for new blood, especially ewes with longer staple length.
Babydolls were chosen for many reasons, their small size makes them easier to handle alone. Being naturally polled prevents them from getting stuck in fencing and feeders. These little smiling cotton balls do not challenge fencing and are generally very calm, relaxed sheep as adults. Lambs need new owners to continue working with them to gentle them. They get along well with other animals and are naturally a very hardy, parasite resistant sheep that also tend to lamb easily. Singles and twins are common, but the rare triplet does happen.
Enjoy your visit, we hope you find everything you are looking for!
