Ol’ Dottie. She is one of a kind. She is our biggest Dorper Ewe. Long legged, full bodied and gorgeous. She loves to give us nose kisses and nibble on our chins. She enjoys a little loving and she trusts us completely. (That’s a little scary.)
Dottie is one of our founding herd members. She gave us quite a scare in 2017. We almost lost her to parasites, but with vigilant care she recovered. She can be a bit pushy around the other ewes, especially the young ones. But all we must do is exclaim “Dottie” and she calms down.
She has blessed us with healthy, big lambs. This last lamb was born on Thanksgiving Day. Instead of feasting with family, we were sitting in the barn with Dottie. She was thankful and we were amazed to welcome new life to the farm.
