The farm that bought him is quite pleased with him. He turned out very well for a ram and had good feet and good shoulders so his babies should not be too hard on the mothers as they are born and the hooves would not require too frequent trimmings.
Lelu was born in April this year to a Sheltand/cross ewe and her father was a Babydoll. She looks very much like a Babydoll Southdown sheep though since the genetics are very strong on that side. Most lambs sired by Babydoll rams will look like Babydoll sheep. The Jacob/Babydoll ram is indistinguishable from the purebred his age. Lelu is going all the way to Armstrong BC! She will be a breeding ewe next year for a small farm operation and will delight the new owner I am sure.
It is always a pleasure raising the lambs and then knowing they are going on to good homes rather than to the slaughter house. This is much more fulfilling, though not all of them are destined for the best. Those who don't make it have only one other choice, or rather, there is only one other choice for them.
Good bye Dominique and Lelu. May your days be lived out in the sun and be long.
