Meet the sheep


We have some Cameroon sheep;  5 ewes, 4 wethers and 1 ram. It is a rare breed from West Africa and a hair sheep, which sheds yearly in the spring. This makes them easy to care for as they don't need shearing, dipping etc. They are better clearing animals than your average sheep and hopefully will be less hard work than the goats as far as getting out ALL the time! At the moment they are clearing our future vegetable growing terraces, recently well fenced with electric fencing to keep the wild boar out.

Other than clearing, the idea is/was to put any excess males in the freezer; or go vegetarian! Not sure Nige would go for that idea though!
