Thread: Sheep

    Sheep

    Mutton anyone?











    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    I would offer to send you a sheep clamp but would probably get banned if I went into detail. Nice looking flock.

    It involves a leather belt and a set of high rise bicycle handlebars. Made one for a guy I used to work with that decided I needed picking on. He was new to the area and didn't know better. He raised sheep on his farm.

    Yeah I get teased at work all the time regarding sheep.

    I will say, since having always worked with cows, I really enjoy the smaller size of sheep. You can get right in with them and do what has to be done without worrying about getting kicked and without worrying about crushed.

    When making the decision whether or not to get into beef or lamb, I talked it over with a lot of sheep people and many had had beef cows and got out of it. They claimed it was too much work. Well for a dairy farmer, raising beef is pretty simple, so I figured if they felt sheep was even easier, I was all for that.

    Again not having a barn on the farm means a sheep's desire to be outside in any weather means no barn is needed really (still required by Maine law). The price of lamb was another factor, but honestly, just trying something new has its appeal too.
