The last lambs produced on the Bergamascos' Babydoll Brigade ® left with their new families in July 2020. I spent over a year contemplating. The decision was finally made it was time for me to retire if I could find a home where the flock could stay together. We, (myself and my husband, lovingly known by all as Farmboy) will be forever grateful to Justin & Mandy Slaven (and their children) for being so excited about being given the opportunity and ultimately giving our entire ewe flock a loving home, enabling the girls to continue to be together.  I found my rams three different homes with families in Kentucky where they will be herd sires.

The Ewes Triplets - Sydney, Sinclair, & Sheridan

I started this adventure with zero livestock experience ten years ago. What an adventure it has been and one I'll cherish forever! Over the years, 138 lambs have been born here and moved to various homes in twenty states - Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. I also had two rams move to Ontario, Canada. One of those rams was the sire to embryos sent to New Zealand. Most years, I maintained a flock of fifteen to twenty sheep and learned how to take care of my Babydolls - from the simple everyday mucking, to giving immunizations, to helping to pull lambs, and most importantly, knowing when something was beyond my expertise and it was time to have my veterinarian involved. I loved to take photos of them while interacting with them daily and posted some of those photos on facebook - , over ten thousand - putting smiles on close to 2000 followers. I've freely shared the knowledge they bestowed upon me and plan to keep the page and continue to post helpful tidbits for fellow shepherds.

I became very active in the North American Babydoll Southdown Sheep Association and Registry as their secretary and wear several other hats too. I will continue all of my roles in the NABSSAR even though I no longer have my flock.

I also research, experimented, and taught myself how to process their fleeces.  I've processed hundreds of fleeces and made many items from sheep to (fill in the blank) purchased and used by folks all over the United States and Canada. I still have fourteen unprocessed fleeces from this year's shearing waiting for my attention.  Visit the Shoppe for available items.

I want to thank everyone I have had the pleasure of communicating with and meeting in person over the years and the many new friends I have made. I'm grateful to all the families who decided I was the shepherdess they wanted to purchase their flock(s) from. I will be forever grateful to all of you. I am still here for not only you; but, for future Babydoll families even though they won't be purchasing from me.
