    I am new to the group and sheep, I have two Suffolk ewes and looking to add ram! Has anyone had success at breeding a Southdown babydoll ram to Suffolk ewes? Thanks for any information or pictures! small hobby farm in West Tennessee

    I don't have either of those breeds but from the ones I have seen I wouldn't think there would be a problem. Just make sure you don't have slight framed ewes because those babydolls (even lots of cross bred lambs I've seen pics of) are pretty stout and wide head and body.
