Weeellllll......the offer is floating. I don't know what I would do with it. I don't do wool stuff and know nada about sheep. It was my principal-he has his hands full right now with other stuff and had not planned on having to bottle a baby. His sheep are always placing high at the fair though.....STOP IT!!! No do not get me thinking about more animals.

And you'd have to feed different and keep the goat minerals away and no goat feed and it may be lonely without another sheep. Yeah stay on the good side Pearce and stick with goats. ;)

Exactly, good point. I have no place for a sheep separate from the goats and I have baby goats and chicks in the works.

Pearce- don't listen to him...I don't know what kind of sheep it is but our Jacobs eat the same feed and get the same minerals and live with our goats... jacobs are hardy like goats, the copper is a storage issue .... these jacobs and their line do not have a storage issue. I really did not think I would like the sheep...they were for my DD.... I am so glad we got them, theya re sweet friendly yet not obnoxiously demanding, and their sound...................I love their sound.

I think the only animal I'd bother with bottle feeding is a baby lambie!

Straw is just jealous....

I mean really look at the parables.... 99 sheep and 1 was lost... and HE went after to find it.... don't see that happening with goats, they get used as the scapegoat for sin............ :lol:

Ok hope that wasn't sacrilege... :hide
