March 28, 2014 - PRLog -- (Manorville, NY)—Just over one month ago, the Long Island Game Farm - Wildlife Park & Children’s Zoo ( welcomed two fluffy Blackbelly sheep into its enormous family—one female and one male. In addition, another female was born three weeks later! When the Game Farm finally opens its doors next month, visitors will be able to get a glimpse of all three for the very first time.

The three newest American Blackbelly sheep were bred and born right on the grounds of the Game Farm. They will be featured in the nursery section of the farm, and guests will be able to bottle feed these adorable, ebony-colored animals beginning on opening day—April 12, during scheduled times throughout the day.

Since the sheep do not have names yet, the Game Farm has initiated a naming contest for all three newborns. Contestants may visit the Game Farm’s Facebook ( page to enter the contest for a chance to win a Family Fun Pass. Those who wish to participate can enter one name for each of the three baby sheep.

The American Blackbelly sheep are small to medium-sized sheep that are extremely energetic and playful. They are a type of hair sheep and are actually a cross between Barbados Blackbelly with the Mouflon and the Rambouillet sheep. They all have distinct coat pattern, which range from tan, to brown, to red with black markings. Rams generally display spectacular horns, while ewes generally are polled, which means hornless. Typically, they grow more or less wool according to winter conditions.

“We are so excited to introduce these three cuddly babies to our guests this upcoming season,” says Melinda Novak, Co-Owner, Long Island Game Farm. “They are adorably friendly animals that will be sure to put smiles on our visitors’ faces.”

The deadline for submissions is May 31st, 2014.
