SHEEP FUN FACT

cheeses can be made from
sheeps milk.  Get some
tips online or from a
professional cheesemaker
on how to start turning
your sheep's milk into a

SHEEP FUN FACT

Sheep get a lot of their
water requirements from
eating fresh forage. Sheep
that are kept on dry hay
and grain will need a
greater water supply
available to them than
those that survive on fresh
pasture.
SHEEP FUN FACT

Sheep have a split in their
upper lip which allows
them to select the
preferred leaves off a
plant.

One of the reasons they
are so devastating to rose
bushes.

They literally can strip the
entire bush, of all flowers
and leaves and never get
pricked by a thorn!
SHEEP FUN FACT

Sheep can recognize other
sheep from pictures!

Sheep outnumber humans
in New Zealand 15 to 1.

The bagpipe was first
made from the liver of a
sheep.
SHEEP FUN FACT

How many breeds of
sheep are there in the
world?

There are 914 breeds of
sheep in the world today!

Welcome to Beau-Peeps Sheep!  We breed and raise registered
Babydoll Southdowns and registered Finnsheep and we specialize in
colored wool lambs!

Why Babydolls? Well just look at those faces!!! Babydolls are small,
they make great pets and the feed bill is very minimal! They only
eat a few pounds of feed a day and are very easy keepers.

The Babydolls are hardy grazers and great for clearing small fields
and vineyards. Too small to reach the grapes themselves, the
Babydoll contents itself with cleaning all the grass and weeds
growing between the rows of grapes!

Why Finns? Finns are a very under-rated and under-used multi
purpose breed. Finns are a super friendly, easy to manage sheep
that have great fleeces, excellent mothering and milking abilities,
and they have the most delicate and flavorful meat of all the sheep
breeds we have ever had. Finn ewes that are bred to terminal sire
rams produce multiple birth lambs with fast growth rates and
unequalled flavor! Their gorgeous fleeces and spectacular colors are
the icing on the cake!

Finn ewes are the absolute best mothers and by far have the easiest
births of any sheep we have ever raised.
SHEEP FUN FACT

How many types of
sheep are there?
There are six different
types. They are: meat
breeds, fine wool
breeds, long wool
breeds, dual purpose
breeds, hair and
double-coated breeds
and minor breeds.
SHEEP FUN FACT

What breed of sheep has
the finest wool?

Super fine merinos are
regarded as having the
finest and softest wool of
any sheep. Originally
from Spain, 80% now
comes from Australia.
There are many varieties
of merino sheep.
SHEEP FUN FACT

What is the worlds
smallest breed of sheep?

Ouessant ewes
(pronounced "wessont"),
stand around 17 in. at the
shoulder with rams at 19
in. Mature weight is
around 25 lbs.
Because of their calm and gentle nature, both Babydolls and Finns make
great sheep for young children. They can easily be taught to lead on a leash
or harness and the Babydolls are small enough that even young children are
safe around them.

As breeders of both these adorable breeds of sheep, In our Babydolls, we
strive for outstanding disposition, small, but within breed standard stature
and fantastic colors! We personally prefer the blacks, greys and chocolates
(all considered to be *black* by Babydoll standards)over the off-whites but
have both colors here.

We have just purchased from South Dakota (Gramma's Babydolls) a
spectacular black ram lamb that tests RR at Codon 171 for Scrapies
resistance. 100% of his upcoming offspring will test RR and QR for Scrapies
resistance. These lambs will be available in 2014!

Babydolls may be either woolly faced or semi-open faced by registry
standards. We prefer a much more open face than the overly woolly ones.
Extreme wool on the face and around the eyes can lead to *Wool Blindness*
in sheep. It is just too much of a management problem to constantly be
trimming the wool from around a woolly Babydoll's eyes. We have
carefully selected our lines for sheep that have lightly woolly to semi open
faces, meaning that the wool does not grow over the eyes and the eyes are
therefore not subject to wool blindness. In the world of sheep raising, this
means less work for us and more time to enjoy our precious sheep!

Another thing we are very particular about is tail docking. We dock our
lambs tails on the longer side. It is a proven fact that overly short docked
tails can and often do lead to uterine prolapse in pregnant sheep. We want
our ewes to have the easiest time possible when lambing with no
unnecessary complications. Long docking, or leaving the tail long enough to
cover the "privates" on our ewes, helps to prevent any problems later on in
their reproductive lives.  If you want your tails docked "fashionably short"
this probably isn't the place to come. Health, safety and quality are our
biggest priorities when it comes to our sheep.

In our Finns we strive for excellent conformation, ability for multiple
birthing and great mothering abilities. Since Finns are naturally *short
tailed* there is no docking required on the lambs. Their temperaments,
friendliness and loving dispositions are second to none.

We specialize in spectacular coloring on our Finns and have Whites, Blacks,
Browns, Greys, Fawns, Pieds and hopefully soon we will be purchasing
some badger faces as well!  We have reserved for purchase 2 IFR registered
RR at Codon 171 for Scrapies resistance Finn ram lambs from Pennsylvania
and also 2 FBA registered QR at Codon 171 Scrapies resistant Finn ram lambs
coming this spring from Washington. We will be able to offer 100% QR and
RR genetics in our 2015 lamb crop for sale!

Please take time to look around our site and feel free to contact us if you
have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment to come see
our sheep.

We only have 2 ram lambs left from our Babydoll lamb crop in 2013! One
black and one white and they are both available for purchase! We should  
have around 20 Babydoll lambs available in 2014 as well as 20-30 Finn
lambs!

A $100.00 deposit will hold your reservation for 2014 lambs!

We also have some great pages for the kids including Sheep in nursery
rhymes and some sheep coloring pages too! Please look around and we
hope you enjoy our site!

SHEEP FUN FACT

Sheep LOVE cookies!!

One of the best ways to
make a flighty/unhandled
sheep friendly is to
introduce them to cookies!

Ours prefer oatmeal
cookies.  Frosted Mini
Wheats are also very much
enjoyed. Once they learn
you are the bearer of
goodies they will soon be
doing anything they can to
get into your pockets. One
cookie leads to another
and pretty soon they are
following you around like
puppies!
