    You are going to feed them separately from the goats right?
    All I know about sheep is,They cant have goat feed due to the copper in it.Its very toxic to them.

    I don't have sheep but post pics when you get them,have fun.

    yeah we have them in seperate pastures and most certainly feed them seperately. they do make a feed with no added copper for both sheep and goats. haven't tried it, for now I use seperate feeds. thanks for the warning however!
