“This was our second stay at Judi's, so it was like coming home to family or a dear friend. After a long day of packing, driving, and moving my daughter's belongings to storage (following her graduation from college), we arrived at Judi’s late at night. Tired, dirty, and bedraggled, we were amazed to find her still up to welcome us and get us settled. After showers and a good night’s sleep in Judi’s comfy beds, we relived old memories from our stay two years ago and caught up on each other’s lives while visiting over breakfast. She told us the latest on her sheep and new dogs, and I even got to relive my days growing up on a ranch by helping gather and load some of her sheep for transport. ”
“I think I said it best above: Judi's home and ranch are beautiful, she makes us feel like family, and her breakfast is always delicious. Being at Judi's is a real throwback to the peace, tranquility, and fond memories I have of growing up on a ranch. ”
“Judi's ranch is off the beaten path, but once you're out there you'll find it's worth the drive. For one thing, you'll see wildlife right off the road.”

“Judi was away at a Sheep show so she had a wonderful couple take care of us in every way during our stay at this terrific house in the country. Jeri Lynn & Bruce spent all afternoon showing us around the farm to meet the dogs and sheep. We learned so much about country life and the animals, it was amazing! Our room was huge and private, as we had all of the downstairs to ourself with a huge country bed and everything we could ask for making our stay one of the best nights of our trip. Breakfast was served early at our request and included all locally grown meats, eggs, etc. We would have loved to spend another night to relax and check out the area but had to leave the next morning to travel north. We ended up talking to our hosts for over an hour to learn more about their extremely interesting journey of how they ended up living where they do and working together, it was a great morning! Thanks so much Judi for making our stay exceed our expectations!”
“The country & the animals, the food, the hosts, the room, and the great nights sleep on a bed that must have been nearly five feet tall and super comfortable! ”

“Our stay at the Lazy J ranch was so much more than just a night at a B and B in a beautiful location. Aside from a beautiful, well-kept home, Judi provided home made snacks, when we arrived, and a delicious breakfast at the time of our choosing. She runs a working sheep ranch, on the property, and we happened to be there during lambing season. We loved bottle feeding the week old lambs and studying life on Judi's ranch. The Lazy J ranch will remain our favorite spot in Idaho's heartland for a quintessential B and and agritourism experience.”
“Judi was genuinely kind. She truly treated us like a priority. Her B and B was impeccably clean and well maintained. She provided everything we needed and more. We were more than satisfied with our experience and we plan to return to the Lazy J Ranch at our next opportunity.”

I am writing to let you know that the ram we purchased from you last Februrary, aka "Little Guy" proved himself to be a giant among rams. All of our 12 ewes were bred and with one more ewe to go, we now have 19 beautiful lambs -10 rams, 9 ewe lambs - all doing well. Every one of the ewes had twins except one that had triplets. So thank you so much for your help and guidance. Thank you, as well, for such a fine ram.

"We got our first Dorpers from Judy a year and a half ago. We enjoyed getting to know her and her husband and liked their sheep a lot. She was ready to help us get started and was always available for advice. She gurantees her sheep will breed and that's something very valuable. I look forward to working with her in the future."

Jim and Judy Mault are serious and committed breeders of Dorper sheep, providing full blooded rams and ewes with outstanding genetics to clients throughout the Intermountain West. New to sheep and to the Dorper breed, we bought a starter flock from the Maults. They were generous with advice and support whenever we needed it, they consistently showed a protective interest in the animals they’d sold us and in our success at breeding, and we subsequently purchased a second ram from them. Our experience with this amazing breed has been very promising and fulfilling. We have enjoyed healthy animals that could withstand all extremes of weather, bred and conceived consistently without missing a beat, producing multiple births of well-marked lambs to our satisfaction. We have repeatedly encouraged those interested in Dorpers to contact Jim and Judi, as they are great stewards of the breed.

We orderd a starter flock from Jim and Judi at the end of 2011 and living in Kansas we could not go there to pick out our lambs so they were kind enough to e-mail us pictures and video so we could pick our lambs.
Judi stayed in contact with us and kept us updated with more pictures and when she seen that there were lambs that looked more like the kind of lambs we wanted she would send more pictures for us to look at. When it was time to pick them up they made us feel very welcome and had food prepared which was very welcome after a 19 hour drive. We can not thank them enough.
I would not hesitate to refer someone who wanted dorper sheep to them.
