In the short time we have had these sheep I can say they are very easy to manage. We paid about $350 each. Even when they get loose, they are easy to corral back into the pen. They eat grass so the food cost is minimal. We have about 2 acres available for them and they cannot keep up with the growth. Our Bernese Mountain Dog chases them for about 2 minutes a day then naps. These sheep avoid human contact, but they are calm when you have them in your grasp. Overall I am happy with these sheep and looking forward to breeding them. We will sheer them once a year for the wool, knit socks and hats, and let them mow down the backyard.
