    Well, I found a new Jacob ram and all I can say is... he is ... ugllllly! :D I hope it was just the pictures. (but don't hold out much hope! :D) lol He need to be sheered and that may help. (but I don't think so) :D

    He is from the Butter Island, Maine flock ... which I had "NO clue what that was" and had to do a search. From what I found it was a flock of sheep that went feral on the island ... and only the strong made it. They were sheered once a year (if they could get them in the lot) other than that they had no human contact for many, many years.

    So we go and give him a good look over and pick him up some time the first of next week.

    And it turns out he is a very nice looking guy. :2thumb: They both need to be sheered but I'm happy with both. (And the way the girls were 'calling' from their pasture ... they like him also. ;)

    I think ... you are thinking about goats. But I can only speak about Jacob rams. Never had any other kind of sheep ... (And right now our billy goat does smell to the high heavens!!! ) lol

    Roman & Turtle both got a 'hair cut' today ... 12 pounds of wool each! :D(normal for my Jacobs would be 4 -5 pounds of wool) I know they both have to feel better ...

    yes, goats... I thought sheep (rams) did it too tho... mmm... I'll check with my buddy & repost :2thumb:

    on a side note, how much milk can you get from a sheep? is it a viable alt to goats?

    I would 'think' it would be like goats ... but I have never milked a ewe, so can't say for sure.

    I know when I was looking into Icelandic sheep that they were triple breed ...meat, wool and milk. If I remember right there are 20 (more or less) different dairy sheep breeds.
