I just got my first sheep. She is a cross between a hair sheep and a wool sheep and could possibly be bred to a wool ram. She was born in March. Any advice for a first timer? I’m working on taming her and am slowly making progress. Do you need to brush sheep? She gets so dirty and has a tail so it gets clumped up with poop. I might have the vet remove it. I bought her as a companion for my goat until she kids since I had to sell my wether due to behavioral problems. I put her in the field but then had to catch her and put her in the stall so that I could tame her first. It took 4 people and 45 minutes to catch her. The field isn’t even that big. So the plan is to keep her in the stall until she is a bit tamer and then put her with my doe, Ila.
