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.

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.

Our main herd sire is "Apollo" 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 2015!

100% OF OUR BABYDOLL LAMBS THAT ARE OFFERED FOR SALE IN 2015 WILL
GUARANTEE TO TEST QR OR RR AT CODON 171 FOR SCRAPIES RESISTANCE! 100%!

Babydolls may be either woolly faced or semi-open faced by registry standards. We
prefer a
slightly 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 Badger!

We welcomed two new FBA registered QR Finns to Beau Peeps in 2014! A Badger ram
lamb with QR genetics and a black ewe lamb with QR genetics as well as an IFR ewe
lamb with QR genetics. These three will be the foundation for our QR and RR genetics
Finns. We will be breeding 10 FBA registered Finn ewes to this FBA registered QR Finn
ram this fall and should have a good selection of QR purebred FBA registered
Finnsheep lambs in 2015!

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

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

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 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!
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

Delicious and exotic
cheeses can be made
from sheeps milk.  Get
some tips online or from a

cheesemaker on how to
start turning your sheep's
milk into a tasty and
profitable cottage
industry product!
