Sheep treats
« on: August 15, 2013, 01:54:38 pm »

Is there anything I can give my sheep as treats? An equivalent to polo mints for horses. Must be something I can carry in my pocket without too much mess!

just keep a few sheep nuts in your pocket. Works just as well as anything else, and it won't rot their teeth  ;)
