Cold Stream the Texel Specialists
Origins of Our Dutch Texel Sheep
We imported our embryos' from a well known, respected Dutch breeder RJ van Doorn. Rinus has been in
the business for over 40+ years, is dedicated to improving the breed and has been very successful in
producing several champion rams and ewes.
Occasionally, Rinus will return to the island of Texel,
located off the northern coast of Holland where the Texel sheep originated from, in search of a
(future/prospective) champion sire to improve his flocks' genetics.
In 2000 new genetics imported from top breeding rams Diamond and Euro from the Netherlands and
another importation of semen from the flock of Kees Kikkert's from Texel Island in 2003, further
improved our breeding stock.
Rinus and family in the spring of 2000 along with their Texel sheep relocated to the beautiful area
of Allier, France. Here they are surrounded by exceptional landscapes and only a hundred kilometers
from the awe inspiring Puy de Dome Mountains.
