Sheep and goats make excellent livestock for small farms with financial or space limitations, and their products can bring producers some income, too.
Yesterday, the little girl lambs came to visit Uzzi and me. They giggled and nudged one another and then Grace, the spokeslamb asked, “You goats look funny. Why don’t you have wool?”
Our sheep were supposed to get shorn today, but it rained last night so now they canâ€™t. Theyâ€™re relieved and upset at the same time. They donâ€™t like to be caught and rolled into all those weird positions, but they say itâ€™s nice to feel the cool breeze on their skins afterward.
