Laughing Goat Gardens decided to start a herd of Debouillet sheep in 2022. In September of 2022 we made a trip to Tatum, NM to pick up our starter flock of 3 female lambs and 1 ram lamb. I had spoken with Deb beforehand to make arrangements and to see if I would be able to get a few lambs from her. After a short interview we were laughing and having a conversation about sheep. I explained my history and my interest in the breed. The Debouillet sheep was discovered my Deb’s grandfather, in the 1920s by crossbreeding the Delaine Merino with the Rambouillet sheep.
