Jasmine (our 4 yr old daughter) has been asking for a lamb for a while now. We (well actually I - not really my husband, but just me) have been casually considering the idea. I found a couple of bottle baby Katahdin lambs. I guess I'm going to pick up one or two next Thursday. I researched them and apparantly the Katahdin sheep are a meat sheep. They seem to be very hardy and easy keepers. I might consider breeding and keeping one ram per year to raise for meat. Anyone have this breed ? ANy advice ?
