Healthy Black headed Dorper sheep near me

Healthy Black headed Dorper sheep near me ,Two years ago, my husband thought it would be nice to surprise me with a ram, 2 ewe’s and a lamb for my birthday! We had talked about getting a few sheep to keep the grass down on our 25 acres. 

I just wasn’t expecting 4 sheep to arrive on my birthday! My husband, being South African, told me about this breed. Buy Healthy Black headed Dorper sheep near me 

We chose the black faced because they are an amazing looking animal, quite beautiful. The black head makes them look very striking and certainly attracts attention. 

Until recently, not many people were familiar with this breed in Australia. But now they are becoming very popular in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and the USA.

Our Dorper’s have bought us so much joy. We have had a few lambs and they are one of the most gorgeous looking baby animals I have ever seen. Because our sheep are pets, we have given them names. 

Our ram is Rambo. And he is as tough as the movie legend! Our two older ewe’s are Ewe-nice and Ewe-genie. They are the friendliest of all our sheep. 

We even put reindeer antlers on them at Christmas time. (great photos for our Christmas cards!) I am sure the neighbors thought we had reindeer instead of sheep! 

We called our first twin girls Rosemary (after the herb) and Ellie-may (from the Beverly Hill Billies). We had twin girl and boy and named them after the actress Holly Hunter. 

The female… Holly and the male Hunter (we live in the Hunter Valley). He is a lovely pet as we neutered him. (he is what they call in sheep terms, a whether) 

The last set of twins that were born were named Domino and Oreo. (had the black and white theme happening). Can you guess what we named our property? Ewetopia!

We have had quite a few lambs born. Most were twins and we even had a set of triplets. Sadly, one of the triplets did not survive. 

young lambs are so adorable. They love to play and are always trying to climb up onto something. Buy Healthy Black headed Dorper sheep near me 

To see them running and pronking (where they hop fast on all fours!) is a sight to see! They love to run up our cattle ramp and jump off the end. When ever they get the chance, they sneak into our chook shed (chicken coup!) and eat all the chicken feed!

Hardy and Adaptable – Dorper Sheep are highly adaptable and do well in harsh, extensive conditions as well as in more intensive operations.

Excellent Maternal Qualities – Ewes are excellent mothers and heavy milkers. Lambs are vigorous and have high survivability.

Long Breeding Season – Dorpers are non-seasonal or have an extended breeding season. They can easily be managed to produce three lamb crops in two years.

Reproductive Efficiency – Dorpers are very fertile and prolific. Lambing rates of 180% can be achieved per lambing.

Pre-potency – Dorper sheep cross well with commercial ewes of other breeds and as terminal sires produce fast growing, muscular lambs.

Non-Selective Grazers – Dorpers are excellent converters of a wide range of forage types and they excel in grazing or weed control operations.

Heat and Insect Tolerant – Because of their Blackhead Persian origin, Dorpers have natural tolerance to high temperatures and heavy insect populations.
