Quote:They're Dorset X's, either crossed with Rideau or Suffolk (depends on which ram boinked their mommas), they've been in a corral with a few rams for the last month or so, so the likelyhood that they're pregnant is pretty darn high. So excited to get them! They're being delivered in the back of the farm they're come froms Ford Focus Stationwagon LOL.
Quote:Well, they're just lawn mowers right now, we have a 1 acre field that is too overgrown to cut, so we needed an animal to clear it, and sheep were what came to mind, and after seeing the areas the people we bought them from had their sheep clear, we were convinced, we'll shear them and have the fleece spun for our own use, and if we ever decide to eat them, they're completely organic, though that probably won't happen since one of them already has a name, Heidi, and the other might get named Gerta.
Quote:Yeah we were thinking on getting goats, but decided since our fencing wasn't great yet that we'd get sheep now who can be contained within electric easily, and in the spring get two milking goats from another farm we know of closeby.
