Almost A Whole Year

Right around this time last year (in about a week), Reni was getting ready to post on social media about our big, crazy, wild adventure...

"Hello, everyone,

Realizing there has been much controversy over the OEBR registry the last 10 months without much resolve and much disappointment we have decided to start a new registry. For those that are interested, this registry will be a closed registry staying within the Mock standards and allowing members who have registered with OEBR in the past to transfer and register their sheep with the new registry. This will include any lambs, ewes and rams that you have sold to buyers while you were registered with OEBR.

As I realize many have paid for memberships and registrations for 2018 with OEBR. We are going to keep the fees for transfers and registrations at a lower cost in 2018. There will not be any membership fees until September 1, 2018. 

Our new registry is electronic and will be maintained by the Associated Registry. 

The name of the new registry is:

BSSBA (Babydoll Southdown Sheep Breeders Association).

If you have questions please feel free to contact us at: and we will be happy to answer questions and concerns.
Thank you."

What first began as just a desperate attempt to preserve our wonderful little sheep's history and pedigrees has become so much more. Since then, we've taken into consideration the input of our members, concepts from other registries & groups and we've kept communication as open as possible ... all while keeping the best of the breed in mind. Whether our members were just looking for get some sort of paperwork to make their sheep "official", were looking for support/community or were interested in some of the dynamic programs & ideas BSSBA had, we truly hope our members have been pleased with being a part of BSSBA.

Here is to even more better days ahead!
