Below are current sheep that are being sold as pets. These are typically middle-age girls that have failed out of my breeding system due to subclinical mastitis or being open more than one breeding season. Some of them could possibly still be bred in an environment where they will get really good feed and care, and/or where their lambs can be orphan-reared when necessary. Otherwise, they make good pets, stock for herding dog training, or “lawnmowers”. They are usually mellow, experienced girls that will be easy to handle and can tame up.
Well-cared for sheep can live well into their teens, especially when they are not experiencing the stress of reproduction. So usually these girls have many years left to enjoy in a “retirement home” setting. Sometimes these ewes end up getting culled for mutton, they are worth $2/lb live weight (so about $300) in that market. But I like to give these hard working girls a chance to find a new home, and I have a significant market of people looking for pets.
If you want to reserve sheep but can’t pick up right away, $100 deposit can hold them for up to a month (board fees apply after that). You can drop a payment by on the front porch, mail me a check, or PayPal, Zelle, or Venmo me. Contact me for details.
