Ok... so I am someone who knows nothing about sheep. I am "thinking" of getting a couple 2-3 for working Phoenix. How do I even start? my biggy questions:
what breed (prefer smaller, healthier overall)?
how much $ should I pay per sheep?
average cost of keeping sheep? (food, vets, ) just a ball park figure, so I have some idea
type housing they need?
how much property do I need?
and lastly....if purchasing does not work out, any tips on negotiating with local farmers on maybe "renting" sheep to work my dog?
Thanks JoeAnne and Phoenix
PS...this may be a really dumb question ,...but I'm gonna ask any way.. LOL!
what about ducks? REALLY? can BC's practice working with ducks??????
(ok you can stop laughing now! Ha Ha
