Welcome to Rocky Top Farms! We raise and sell registered Southdown Babydoll sheep and registered Myotonic Goats (fainting goats).

 This is Max. He loves to run circles 
             around the herd.


This is Dollar. He loves sheep and goats.


















             


                        



When I was a child in Sunday
 school I always loved seeing
pictures of Jesus out in the fields
protecting the sheep. He always
seemed content in those pictures.
And that is exactly how sheep make
me feel, content.

My father bred and sold sheep many years ago. He was a member of FFA and showed sheep at the historic Ravenswood Farm in Central Missouri. He dispersed his herd before I was born. So finally, in 2014, I bought my first sheep and decided I would also try some goats too, just for the fun of it.


Olde English Southdown Babydoll sheep are perfect for me. They are small and not aggressive. Their faces look like giant teddy bears. You will fall in love with them. It is inevitable. And they are pretty laid back.

Babydoll Southdown sheep are known for their docile dispositions. For this reason, they are often kept as pets, but they are also used in a variety of ways such as grass mowers and weed eaters in vineyards and orchards and 4H projects. They are small in stature and are easy to handle. Their small size and efficient metabolism requires less acreage per animal compared to other breeds of sheep. Thus, they are referred to as being "easy keepers." They are excellent mothers and are known for having multiple births. The Babydoll Southdown is known for its abundant carcass (relative to its size) and flavorful meat and is crossbred with lighter weight breeds of sheep to produce lambs of higher quality for market. They are also prized for their wool.


Babydolls are between 17" and 24" tall when they are full grown. This makes them easier to handle than many other sheep. They make great FFA or 4-H projects for kids. Also they rarely challenge your fencing.

Besides this unique feature of “freezing,” Mytonic goats are small, non-jumping, friendly creatures that are disease resistant and co-mingle well with all other livestock which makes great additions with minimal care.

Here are some kids from last year.
