When we first began our small holding we knew we wanted sheep. We chose the Poll Dorset because it is very friendly and always has twin lambs. We kept them for eight years but needed a new ram. This was impossible to find as all Poll Dorsets in France originate from the same stock. We have now changed our breed to Portlands and Shetlands. These are a lot smaller and have horns so you have to take care when looking after them.
