Stud tour QLD June 2023
A quick getaway to sunny QLD before lambing begins here in WA and we had the great pleasure of meeting up with Johanna Willans from Camare Babydoll Southdown's https://www.facebook.com/people/Camare-Babydoll-Southdown-stud/.and Anthea Wendt from Meraki Babydoll Southdown sheep. Meeting them both plus getting to meet their adorable sheep was the highlight of my holiday. Their dedication to the breed and their future plans to improve wool and the breed in general was wonderful to hear plus we got to see some amazing QLD countryside. Thanks to both studs for allowing us to visit XXxx

QUEBON STUD COLOURED SHEEP
Feb 2023 saw us import 5 coloured sheep from Quebon Stud NSW These sheep will become part of our new adventure into coloured Fleeces and hope to use them with our appendix Babydoll Southdown programs. Improving the wool and adding colour will hopefully increase the wool value as well as making it usable for all things wool related. Transport provided by Quick Silver Transport WA
2023 has started with a Lovely Visit from Sarah and family from Tamarack Springs Vermont USA . Tamarack springs is run By Sarah Ellen, Morgan Delaney with help from Elisa and Emma. They breed the American Babydoll Southdown and Various other Sheep breeds in the beautiful Caledonia Country . It was amazing to learn all about the American Babydoll in particular the differences we have in the ways we manage our Sheep and hearing about their lambing season which is in Feb /Mar was very interesting. Dealing with Brown bears and Coyotes and -30 temperatures are a far cry from our 40 plus Degree heat waves.
