    Hello! We have three sheep. Their names are called Joshua, Myrrh, and Cotton! We got them as orphaned lambs. We have no idea what breed of sheep. They might be Dorper sheep. If they are hair sheep, can we still shear them and spin their wool? Here is a picture of them,[​IMG]

    What is the easiest way to shear them? What is very healthy treats to give them? Thank you!!!!

    I see you are a compassionate person, since you are not asking as to where to taken to,....... well you know what...... Cant help you with identifying them but just wanted to let you know one thing. The sheering tool is NOT CHEAP. Enjoy your pets, My daughter when she was small kept asking me, Daddy, can i have a lil goat or sheep. She never asked for a pony. ENJOY YOUR PETS
