baby doll sheep have arrived

Linda and Rob Power of ROblin Baby dolls, delivered today some of their beautiful baby doll sheep, they are just georgeous, they are on their way to New Zealand.
Apparantly they are from the pure southdown sheep that were imported in the 170o's to Australia.
The Southdown breed were bred to be a bigger sheep over the many years, whilst these sheep have been kept to the original pedigree with no crossbreeding with other sheep breeds.
Very rare sheep, in Australia, and are often used to keep Orchards and Vineyards clean, as they are too small to damage the lower lims of trees and vines.
They are just georgeous.
