Hi Valerie! I've got one ewe who used to stamp her feet at everyone if they got too close. She was 4 when I got her. Now she'll trample whoever has the grain bucket. Not bashful at all, lol! I've got a dorset ewe lamb that thinks she's a goat, will eat the clothing right off your body and has even tried to jump up on me while I was walking through the field. Most of my sheep are Romney, and pretty docile creatures with the exception of one, who we've had since she was 8 weeks and she's just a flighty girl. So sometimes it's just the luck of the draw and the individual's personality. Go take a look at the breeds you'll be able to choose from and see if you like their wool. I'm too new at this to describe the differences, but I've got quite a bit of variety with my three Romneys in regards to what they produce (but they're all crossbreeds, so that's part of it.) Find out if the breeder shears once or twice a year, and if it's once ask how long the staple length is. It doesn't need to be more than 3 inches to spin so if it's 5 or more inches and shorn once a year, be prepared to shear more often. HTH!
