At the Texas County Fair in Houston, MO we got to see the Dorper sheep for the first time. Our neighbor is thinking about breeding these sheep on his farm. I had never heard of this kind of sheep before. You do not have to shear them, they are a hair sheep. This is great as finding shearers is very hard these days. These sheep were very docile and stocky, sold for meat. The breeder was showing ewes and a ram pure blood Dorper. His daughter won 1st prize showing her sheep without a halter or lead rope. After seeing these sheep I think my neighbor is on to something fun and exciting to raise. We also enjoyed seeing the young children learning how to show their livestock.
