    Great news! Coyotes will kill everything they can. Glad that you got so many of them. How touching that your ewe came to you and rested her head on your shoulder. Sheep aren't as stupid as they are made out to be.

    I've only just seen this thread, and am SO glad that we don't have the serious predators that many of you have.Great news that you have cleared so many.

    I was horrified to lose a chicken to a buzzard a few weeks ago. Foxes are our worst predators, particularly for the chicken, but coyotes etc are a whole different ball game..

    If you have despatched so many coyotes hopefully things will soon look up. Sheep can become very affectionate and trusting...it's nice that you are being seen as 'head ram'......protector etc. I hope you will soon be able to fully enjoy your sheep.
