That's great Nick! I'm glad the video was helpful.  Thank you for the feedback.

Thank you for that feedback Mark!

I believe I have met the requirements for creating a post with an image and creating a post with a video (I have several with videos) but the scavenger hunt indicates otherwise.  I am open to the likelihood that I am misinterpreting something here.
Great suggestion for future content Kyrt!  What has worked for me with some of my sheep has been spending a lot of time with them in a small corral and feeding them treats (organic alfalfa pellets or organic field peas).  Food helps build trust.

I recently published a YouTube video and a more detailed companion e-book titled 6 Things You Need to Get Started with Sheep

The genesis of this came from Justin Rhodes.  He asked if I could help him get ready for the lambs he is brining onto his homestead this spring.  I made a list of materials with links and send it to him.  After doing all the research and compiling the list, I thought I should share it with everyone.  

Here is a link to get access to the FREE e-book: E-Book Link

Here is the YouTube video:

Let me know what you think.  I've never made an e-book before so I'm curious about the feedback.  My hope is that it is a really good resource for people who are looking at getting started with sheep on a homestead scale.

Feeding people, and having them enjoy it, is a wonderful pleasure to me. On Friday night, I was able to feed a bunch of permie people with leg of lamb grown at The Grass-fed Homestead. It was delicious! Then, a couple days later we made lamb stew from the leftovers and shared that with more friends. Thank you Dan!!

You're welcome, Jocelyn!  I'm really glad you enjoyed the lamb!

I was thinking the same thing when I was listening to his voice over on the video.  He has a profession voice over voice...he could be the guy that does that for movie trailers!

I interviewed Cliff today about the Farm and Sustainability Tour and the kickstarter.

It was a 45 minutes discussion I edited down to about 15 minutes.  I will be releasing the full length discussion soon after I launch my new podcast.

I loved that too!  Dan, with a little luck, your momma pig could become the newest YouTube sensation, LOL!

Well...we ate her.  That abruptly ended her YouTube career
