Our Farm Babies Are Here!
They’re here! They’re here!! Our farm babies are here!!! Or should I say our farm “Babydolls” are here!! I’m so excited to finally be able to tell you that we got 3 Olde English Southdown Babydoll lambs! We picked them up on Friday and I’ve just been on cloud 9 since! Just look at their sweet teddy bear faces!

Our Farm Babydolls
They are 8 weeks old and came from a sheep breeder in Kentucky. We brought them home on Friday, May 1st. We got 2 ewes, one black named Clementine, one white named Penelope, and a wether (castrated male) Theodore.
Our Farm Babydolls
It will take a few days for them to warm up and feel comfortable here and away from their mothers. But we’ve been spending lots of time sitting and talking to them. Don’t be deceived by the photo I’m sitting a few feet back. The babydolls only stand about 18 inches tall or about knee height right now! So little!
We’re also working on getting them into a routine and introducing them to our other farm babes slowly. I’ll share some photos I’ve taken of them meeting each other for the first time later this week! But so far it’s went really well!
Farm Babydoll Penelope
Penelope or ‘P’ for short was a single lamb and she looks a lot like her momma who we were told is extra sweet. I just adore her little chubby face! She seems to be doing really well with the other two who are siblings.
Farm Babydoll Theodore
Theodore and Clementine are siblings. Theodore is a wether, and has been banded it just has yet to fall off. Our reasoning for getting a wether is because we’ll be adding one more sheep to our flock this spring! A ram! This way in late summer/early fall we can separate the ram from the ewes to prevent breeding at their young age. And then the ram will still have the wether for a companion. Sheep need sheep! They’re a herd animal and shouldn’t ever be the only one.
Doesn’t Theodore “Teddy” for short just have the sweetest face! Babydoll wethers are known to be extra gentle and great companion animals.
Farm Babydoll Clementine
Clementine “Clemi” for short is our darling black ewe lamb. She and her brother are thick as thieves. Black Babydolls wool may lighten up or change in color as they age. I’m excited to see what she looks like as an adult! Clementine is definitely the bravest so far. She’s very curious about me and the other animals here especially the cats!
Our Farm Babies Are Here!
I’m a happy girl y’all! Now our farm really feels, looks, sounds, and smells lol, like a real farm! The lambs are such a calm and peaceful addition. In the coming weeks I’ll be sharing more about the breed, why we chose them, and our plans for our sweet little flock. Plus lots of cute lamb pictures because who doesn’t need that in their lives?!
I can’t believe I kept this secret for almost 8 months! But it was worth it because it feels SO good to let you in on it this way now that they’re home! I hope they put a smile on your face today and will many other days to come!
Thank you so much for sharing in our joy and being along for this journey!

What a day brightener to see your new lamb babies. I hope you will share how you found out about this breed. Melts your heart to look at them. 💕 I can’t wait to share these pictures with my 6 year old granddaughter who loves animals. Her favorite stuffed animal is her “Lammie”. Lammie has slept with her since infancy. What a lovely, peaceful place you have to “stay home.”
Good morning Ramona! This made my day! I hope your granddaughter enjoys seeing them and watching them grow! I’m excited to share all about this precious breed! They truly are darling! Have a wonderful day!
