don't really have a problem with the deer they may bite but it is more with the squash but you have to give and take with mother nature plus i like watching them in my fields and i also hunt them and i figure if i have a lot of crop damage i will have good hunting

  Well, in that case I wouldn't worry so much about shearing them soon (ish). Have a great weekend.

  Hm, I kept them in a more temperate climate but I would have to say that in my experience we sheared them shortly before they would naturally lose their hair and that would in spring. So, in that case, they would have short coats anyway! They are hardy animals but I do recommend a shelter if you shear them and then have freezing snowy weather.

  Yes, I have had angoras. What are you concerns for keeping them in the midwest?

  Hi
Thanks for the warm welcome! Actually my sheep are hair sheep so they don't give wool. They are a meat sheep and also used for maintaining grass ares that are hard to get to for mowing. Mine do a wonderful job. You are so right about the Aussies. My little girl took to herding right away. The sheep keep her busy but she enjoys making sure the horses "stay in" the pasture and the ducks stay together. She is still a pup 11 months and loves to run through a flock of chickens scattering them all over. What type and breed of goats are you looking at? I am interested in them too. I am wanting dairy goats.

  Good morning. Do you keep your chickens together or in different pens? What breed of goats will you all go with. Have a safe weekend.

Come visit me, The Homestead.

My grandson loves to pick it every spring and he eats it right then as fresh as you can get it.
