Here's a question for all you sheeples (sheep people):

Do your sheep have good personalities? I've always heard that sheep were stupid and not as good as companions as goats, but I'm finding this is seriously not the case.

My sheep are hilarious and intelligent animals and a joy to have around. I never get tired of seeing their inquisitive faces and watching their cute antics.

Maybe people think this about sheep when they are in large herds and they don't have a personal bonding time with them?

First of all SpectrumRanch, on that 4 horned jacob sheep...WOW!!! :th I have honestly never ever witnessed something so, well bazaar....WOW. Very cool!!!!

Yes, Beekissed, when my first sheep was delivered I said, "Isn't she cute?" The man who dropped her off said yes she was cute, but as dumb as a box of rocks. WRONG! That sheep (Dolly, a Border Cheviot) is as smart as my two dogs combined! And with a personality to boot. She makes me laugh too, I wouldn't trade her for the world. :love (Out of the two, Dolly is the silly clown.)

My other sheep Dorothy, the Katahdin, is very demure and quiet so it hard to tell her intelligence level...I need to give her more time to develop a personality, she is new. I will tell you though, Dorothy lets me know right away when something doesn't belong on the property.

:lol: "sheeple"
I have to say, I have 4 sheep...3 Ewes and a Ram. Only 2 of the Ewes are over a year old, the other Ewe and Ram is this springs babies. They ALL have great personalities! Very social...loveable, and I can sit with them for hours just watching them, and scratching them. I have never had goats...but I know a few people with them, and they say the same thing about thier goats. I think it all has to do with how they are raised....and socialised.

That's a great looking herd! I spotted one ewe that really resembles one of my gals. Love all the variety and colors! Can't wait to develop my own small herd of painted sheep. I will be adding some browns and more white with the next purchase.
