Hubbell North is Home to New Mexico Dahl Sheep

04/09/2016

The Hubbell North property in the South Valley is the new home for a small group of New Mexico Dahl Sheep, which includes a ram, two ewes and a baby lamb born recently on the property.

Visitors to the Gutierrez-Hubbell House will now have the opportunity to see this newest addition to this historic property and relive a part of Bernalillo County and New Mexican history.

The New Mexico’s Dahl sheep is the only state recognized heritage sheep adopted by the New Mexico House of Representatives in 2013.

“This particular breed was nearly extinct but is now brought back to prominence,” said Bernalillo County Commission Chair Art De La Cruz.” And the county is proud to have them here at the Gutierrez North property for everyone to see and enjoy.”  

The county also unveiled two special projects associated with the new sheep, the BernCo Bernie Baby Lamb Shower and the BernCo Bernie Baby Lamb Naming Contest.

The public is being asked to donate items to Bernalillo County Animal Care Services to help that agency care for animals in need.

Items needed, for both pets and livestock, include collars, leashes, salt blocks and hay. Donated items can be dropped off at any one of five locations throughout the county through April 29. For a full list of items and locations, go to BernCoBernie.com.

Submit your name choice by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or email. The winner or winners will get a special package from BernCo Bernie. Again, visit BernCoBernie.com for all the details and look for the pink ribbon on the home page.
