Eventually, yeeeeears down the road, we'd like to get some little sheep to mow our lawn, and for fibre, and maybe milk and meat. I'd like to start reading now about shepherding. Do any of you have any favorite resources?
Pat Coleby has one called 'Natural Sheep Care'. Her focus is on making animals resilient to pests and diseases by making sure they are getting the right amount of minerals in their diet. I only got it out once from the library for a short time quite a while ago so can't remember if it goes into much detail about milking, fibre and meat, but a neighbour of mine a few years ago used to raise sheep for fibre, she followed Coleby's book and had very healthy sheep.
