kelpiegirl Posted April 1, 2006 Report Share Posted April 1, 2006 Hi everyone: Well, it is official- we are getting sheep. My brother and I spoke about this again last night, and well, we are of the same mind. He owns the land, and is itching to get stock back on it, and I of COURSE have wanted to do this for some time. So, our tasks first are to lay out the pasture areas and fence in, and walk every inch to make sure it is "safe", and also then, retrofit the barn to make it suitable for winter month use. There ARE coyotes around, so I am concerned about them.... We have large coyotes in this part of NY. Anyway, that is the news. Any insight is great, especially on good numbers to start with, and pointers that will make it better for the sheep. They will of course be used for herding, but the primary concern will always be their health. Julie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
