Fuzzy ram butts all in a row.

The shades of brown are actually sunbleached tips, the real wool colors are hidden underneath.

Back one with the lightest tips is actually a dark blue gray, while the one in the very front is a dark brown. The middle fuzzbutt is medium brown, so actually pretty close to his sunbleach color lol.

All 3 are my breeding rams. 2 will be used this winter (the front 2) for their respective breeds and the third is a backup til next year.

My first #sheepshearing experience...
Thankful for this community of homesteaders I have found that helps each other out and passes on knowledge without judgement.



We lost our sweet grace and welcomed 2 additional #babydollsheep this week. This #georgiaheat is tough so we sheared them even though its September. One decided to escape the table when we switched to do her face... looks like simba.
Its been a long week but #liveandlearn as we go...

Daily walks down the road, into the creek and around the farm.

The barn chickens have decided that the babydoll sheep make very comfortable moving beds.

Was trying to get some nice body shots of my babydoll ram lamb but every time I see a good one he moves 🙄 so hard to tell in these photos but I'm actually really pleased with how he's growing so far.

Nice walk, straight legs, even back. He should be quite handsome growing up. We shall see his first babies spring 2022!

Today the last of our reserved 2021 lambs went to new homes - and we began breeding for our next lamb crop!

Reservations will begin to be accepted in November once we’ve confirmed pregnancy on these ewes. Visit our website for more information on how to reserve your lambs! https://www.moonhollow.com/Ranch #babydollsouthdownsheep #nabssar #oebmssr

What a good looking trio 🐑

These three gimmers came in this evening to have their photos taken for their pedigree registrations ready to move down south to their new home.

Slightly gutted we sold them as lambs because they have grown into great little gimmers 😍

Storm enjoying escaping from the garden to come and help us too 😂💙⛈

If you want to feel needed by someone, get some sheep.

They’ll come running every time they see you (at dinnertime 🙄)

I love watching my sheep be sheep. There's something very grounding and therapeutic about it, even if all they're doing is eating grass and pooping it out.

Just a few random pics of the boys and girls here at Sea Dog Ranch.

It’s been hot in the Pacific NW lately and thankfully all the sheep have been doing well as we put some fans in the barn to help with a breeze. If you’re in the PAC NW, what month do you shear your sheep? We sheared in April and so far it’s been good. Can’t wait to head into fall for our first breeding season!

In all the excitement of the wonderful Storm arriving home I forgot to tell you that Little Lamby went off to his new home on Wednesday afternoon.



Anyone who has followed for a while will know how much he meant to me. He was the first bottle lamb I actually owned myself (by myself I mean with Alan obviously - he wouldn’t have even made it of it wasn’t for Alan). He was one of only 2 tup lambs born last year from our pedigree babydoll flock and the good news is they both went off to their new home together. Hopefully soon they will establish another babydoll flock in Scotland (we currently the only Scottish flock 😱).

One of the hardest realities of farming is you can’t keep them all because of you could he would have stayed forever. ❤️

Photos are with him before and after shearing, in the first he’s my fluffy little Lamby I’ve known for the last year and half and in the second he’s a little fat naked hippo 😂

Sheep grazing ASMR. Boys each wanted to be closest to mom at the fence.

Albert 🥟 Al, Berty

Albert is the 2nd ram in our herd. He will breed with Baarb and Fiona.

When he isn’t trying to meet with his ladies, he is quite a sweet boy from the other side of the fence. He is happy to get some chin scratches or some armpit rubs. His favorite is to share his very strange onion burps with me. He doesn’t eat onions but he definitely burps like he has.

Today my sweet friend Sharon @misty_frog_acres came over and showed us how to skirt our fleeces.

This fleece is from Baarb. Hers and Fiona’s fleeces are quite long for Babydolls we’ve been told. Learning so much about our cute lawn mowers. It makes me wonder what other kind of sheep I might like 😋

Fiona 💐 Fifi, the Feefster

Fiona is another sweet ewe.

She loves a good scratch like Baarb and will be right there when you’ve got a treat. Her and Baarb both came from Redmond, OR along with our 2nd Ram, Albert.

Baarb 🌺 Now and Then (2020)

Barb is my friend.

She generally comes for snuggles and scratches each evening. She took all of about 2 days to let me pet her and we’ve been buddies ever since. Most days, she is the first sheep to come over and check on me. Her love language is scratches under her chin. I can’t wait to see what kind of mom she will be in the spring. Baarb will be bred to our ram Albert.
