Small breed for mixed grazing
« on: May 22, 2009, 04:45:59 pm »
I'm thinking of getting a couple of sheep to go in with our Ponies.

If anyone has any advice on which might be suitable and what costs are involved
the help would be very much appreciated.

Kind regards,

we have 10 sheep + 4 lambs the sheep have shared the grazing over winter with 5 shetland ponies. the ponies are very mean they enjoy chasing the sheep no harm ever done but they seem to enjoy rounding them up. Depends on your ponies. we have 7 Shetlands and 3 cheviots. the Shetland ram however has a peace deal with them. after facing each other head to head. by the way our rsam lambs have been sneeking into see there dad he seems to like there company. is this normal.
