BARBADOS SHEEP

            We started our farm with 3 Barbados sheep rescues from the Santa Cruz SPCA.  Well, they are part Barbados anyway - actually they are mutts - not sure what other type of sheep breed is in there, but they are not pure.  The first three - Sarah and her two children Simon and Jacob.   Unfortunately Sarah died shortly after we moved to Virginia as a result of a pregnancy gone wrong.  We also lost her triplet lambs.   As with the Cheviots, I use the Barbados to cross with our Babydolls to produce a small, adorable sheep to use as natural lawn mowers.  They are very friendly as well.

     We recently added 2 new Barbados (mutts) to the mix.  Leah and her daughter Dinah came to us from Bayfield Farm in Oxford, NC.

      Well, Leah surprised us with a lamb - father unknown but probably same dad as Dinah because the lamb is snow white.  Her name is Rachel.
