Laurae Posted June 11, 2007 Report Share Posted June 11, 2007 Inspired by Julie, I'm just starting to ponder what might be involved with getting a few of my own sheep (or, actually, going in with a friend so we can get more and share costs). The easiest way to do it would probably be to buy some sheep and see if we could board them with someone else who already has their own flock. That way, the fencing, shelter, and feed would be taken care of, as well as having someone live on the premises should any sort of emergency come up. It would also be easier to have someone come out and, say, shear because we could time these kinds of maintenance issues with the bigger flock's schedule (though we'd probably get hair sheep). I know costs will vary from region to region, but can anyone talk about what an arrangement like this might cost? Are there any particular drawbacks? Or benefits I haven't thought about yet? I'm way in the early stages of thinking about this, but I'm already pretty excited at the thought. Thanks for any insight! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
