Sheep for sale ...

Posted 1/10/2018 10:02am by Renee Savary.

Good morning All …

I must sell all my sheep and I need your help to spread the word …

Where I am now, I have very little pasture and I was keeping the sheep around the house, not the perfect solution but, at least, they had some grass to nibble on. All went well till Sunday, New Year’s eve, when they found out that some 100 yards of fence line with my neighbor were just a string of barbwire that they could cross very easily. You know the adage : The grass always greener … The other side is a horse pasture, it is not like they were destroying cultivated fields. Still they were not supposed to be there and my neighbor made it clear. We, the sheep and I, kept the day going back and forth, me getting them out of there, them going back … In the meantime I had called my fence guy and scheduled him first thing after New Year … On New Year’s morning the sheep went back and the neighbor called the police !!! … I am making a long story short here but it became a major drama …

After being severely schooled by the police, I moved the sheep in a part of the farm where they have no food, but for some hay which they don’t really like, they rather snack of dry grass … and that is also very wet due to the intense rain we had recently which is not good for they little hoofs … but I have no other solution for keeping them in.

The situation is not good for them and I am not happy about it. We did fix the fence but as soon as I got them back, this side of the farm, they made a B line for the fence and it is just a question of time till they find a way to go back and the last thing I need is some neighbor crazy drama …

Sheep are easy to keep and mines have been grass fed only, they are not picky and your don’t need a perfect pasture, they can graze on a rotation with other livestock, they are very gentle and have been handled on a daily basis so you can move them easily. They have been professionally sheared every year but for 2017.

I am selling the whole flock, they are all 100%  Gulf Coast Sheep, either registered or can be registered, I had a closed herd for many years.

I have ewes, rams, yearlings and lambs. I have around 40 as of today, lambing season is on …

Ewe are $175, Yearling $150, Ram $250 and lamb $50. Most of my ewes are pregnant, the unborn lambs are a bonus.

I will take $5,000 if sold as a whole.

and this is where I need your help : Please help me spread the word … May be you have a friend that has a friend … I need to get them going as soon as possible … it will be better for them …

Thank you All for your help …
