Colin's Creatures Primitive sheep decor, Dorset Ewe with Sleeping Newborn


 

This lamb learned very early where the softest spot can be found - on mama's fur, of course! This resting duo features a tan Dorset ewe with her creamy newborn lamb nestled in her fur (though you can place the lamb where ever you prefer).

All my creatures are handcrafted in my Asheville, NC studio using porcelain, castable stone and imported woven fur from the Steiff company in Germany. All my creatures are handcrafted in my Asheville, NC studio using porcelain, castable stone and imported woven fur from Steiff-Schulte in Germany.

Breed Description
 
The Dorset (or Dorset Horned) is an English sheep known mostly for its prolific lambing. It has been known to produce two lambing seasons per year: bred in May for lambs finished by the holidays, and bred again immediately after the first lambing to produce again in March or April. The Dorset has a white face with close short fleece. It has a solid build, with broad back and short legs. Originally, both rams and ewes had horns. --info via Wikipedia
