Our sheep just love raisins. The 4 of them jump up on me like dogs to get it!!!
They will practically take your hand off for sweet biscuits! Mine just need to see the familiar red packet (digestive biscuits) or even hear rustling as though from a packet and they gallop over. If I'm wearing a coat, several will push their muzzles into the pockets searching for crumbs.I had no idea sheep like such sweet stuff!
Thanks! You are all really helpful.Sheep have very much of a 'Sweet Tooth'. They love any sweet biscuits. Most like chocolate breakfast bars etc. and any type of bread with or without margarine.
The 'ewe nuts' which they have as feed concentrate and 'ewe licks' are full of molasses and other unrefined sugars as the manufacturers know this.
By the way, welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll find this a good place for advice on just about anything!
