We've only had them for about 6 months and I like the sheep, but I am the only one. We are going to sell them and focus on goats and I'll have a free pen if I sell the sheep. The main reason, other than them being extremely wild, is that there is no market here for them. I have a hard time selling the babies for even $50. The adults can go for maybe $100. With feed being so expensive here it just isn't worth it for us to raise them, and Steve doesn't even want to process any of them as he says he doesn't like lamb/ mutton. So we're trying to sell them as a starter herd, but most likely I will have to break them up and sell them off in pairs. It's sad selling animals you have grown attached to, even unfriendly ones, but we have to do what works for us, and we are trying to sell them to people who we know will give them good homes... So long sheepies!
In 2009, we moved to a rural rental on the outskirts of San Diego to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and to get away from the chemicals in our food and in our life. Little did we know that just a few years later we would be real farmers; growing fruits, vegetables and herbs, as well as many different kinds of chickens, ducks, turkey, bunnies, guineas, quail, goats and more! We left the suburbs for "Green Acres" and haven't looked back since!
