Ok, now that I've narrowed down the breeds of sheep I'm interested in. How do you feed sheep? I know they need a decent pasture. If you need to supplement what type of hay and feed do they need?

Thanks,
Sonja

Awww, what kind of sheep will you get and what will they be for? Pasture decoration, 4h, wool?
I've never had sheep, so I can not answer your question. Probably depends on how lush your pasture is, to decide what type of supplemental feeding they need.
Horses and cows need salt blocks, do sheep?
Good luck!

We'd like to raise them for meat and milk. So far my favorites are dorpers, friesians, southdowns, and polypays. We'd like a ram and 2 ewes to start so I need to narrow my choices down.
