Yeah, I thought it was interesting too. Although I didn't understand where the wool went. Like it seems it would be like a dog, spread all over the place, not as easy to collect. But better than shearing. But yeah, the price on them and the paint sheep is kind of ridiculous.
but i guess they're still a new concept. I'm sure they'll be more widespread and/or be mixed with some of the more "classic" breeds to create self sheding.in lots of breeds eventually maybe
