Where does my Santa hair come from? Well, sheep - these are the sheep we raise- Baby Doll Southdown, a rare breed which gets no bigger than 22 inches in height. These ewes are so loveable - know their names, will follow you anywhere and we expect new lambs to be born in January ( 3 ewes due then) and then again in February- (3 more ewes). Shearing of the sheep normally is before they give birth but I think we are holding off since January might be a bit too cold. My Santas have 100% wool roving for their hair and beards.
