Linda Doane, 69, and her grandson Danny Rand, 12, look in on ewes that have not yet given birth before feeding them breakfast at Maple Ridge Sheep Farm in Braintree Saturday, April 20, 2013. Doane imported the first flock of Shetland sheep, a heritage breed known for their fine wool fiber, into the United States through Canada in the early 1980's. What started as a hobby grew into a flock of 300 in the 1990's and now she keeps between 75 and 100 for their wool, breeding stock, lamb and mutton.
