    Our ewes get shepard 16, is that OK for pregnant ewes? They get it twice a day and also get 2 flakes a day between the two of them . Also can anyone recommend a good lose mineral for them. Just want to make sure I'm doing the correct thing here lol I'm a sheep newbie

    All that sounds good to me, though personally I'd leave hay out free choice unless they have other forage to access. I can't recommend a good loose mineral because it varies so much by location. I'd find some local farmers who have sheep and start there. I would say NOT to feed Purina Sheep Minerals.
