Tim Tyne's The Sheep Book for Smallholders. Excellent, covers all you need to know, I wish it had been available when I first kept sheep.

 See above - I second that - good book!

Once you have got the sheep, it might be advisable to get a veterinary one, I have got the following ones too (and use them regularly):

Agnes Winter " Lameness in Sheep" (explains all you need to know about limping sheep for the small scale sheep keeper)

Agnes Winter and Judith Charnley " The sheepkeeper's veterinary Handbook"


What books are the best for sheep??
