contemplating sheep

A friend of a friend put us in touch with someone who has a small sheep farm that was a bit more productive than expected this season (every one of her ewe’s calved – some with twins).  She’s looking to sell the extra lambs, so Will is going to check out her farm next week and get the scoop on what taking on sheep involves.

Right now we’re thinking 5 ewes, at the most.  The plan would be to keep a few as breeding stock and slaughter two or three in the spring.  I’m both excited and daunted.

And we still have pigs coming in about a month.  Yeah, we are so biting off more than we can chew.
