Do you breed these sheep? and if so, what do you do about when lambing time comes around? Very cool, I will have to show this to hubby. We do happen to have an unused dog kennel hanging around waiting to be repurposed, too.Iceblink said:Here is a picture of my rotational grazing setup. It consists of a 5' x 12' x 6' chain link dog kennel, an axel, two wheels, two lambs, and by the end of the summer, strong arms.
I put the sheep in the pen, and pulled it to a different area 3 times a day. I added organic untreated pasture seeds to their creep feed, and in theory, they re-seeded my small pasture. All in all, my set-up worked really well. My sheep were secure, even when they were tiny, they couldn't eat enough to get bloat, but they got enough to gain weight at a regular rate, and I didn't have to spend an arm and a leg in fencing.
Plus, once I built their large winter pen, I could run my fall chickens in the kennel.
I did laugh at that one. I would LOVE to own the 50 adjoining farm acres in back of my property. However, I am behind on my maintanence of my own 5 acres right now!! Here are some pictures of my property. When I first moved there 10 years ago, I had 5 horses. I'm at 2 right now, and soon will have 3 or 4 this year.FarmerChick said:
Yes, that is Portia. She was supposed to be in the freezer by now, but since she was born so late (Mid June) it wouldn't have been worth processing her in Nov, so I decided to keep her and breed her this fall.is that a Dorper I see in there?
OOOH you have a shed I am jealous! Total is .123 of a acre at my house.Wifezilla said:
