-   The Southdown was developed by John Ellman in Sussex beginning in 1780.
-   By 1945, the breed was nearly extinct due to consumer demand for larger cuts of meat.
-   Robert Mock began a search for miniature sheep in 1986 and found 2 small flocks of Southdowns.
-   Mr. Mock named them Olde English “Babydolls” to distinguish them from today’s larger Southdowns.
-   “Babydoll” fleece has more barbs per inch than any other wool type making it an ideal blend with Angora rabbit or Angora goat.
