We started our Windy Grange last September 2007 by purchasing a starter flock of registered Shetland sheep. The group consisted of 1 lamb ewe, 1 yearling ewe, 2 mature ewes and 2 lamb rams.
In November, we purchased an additional 2 lamb ewes and 1 mature ram.
December brought us our first llama and to him we added 3 more this past March.
It's been nearly a year with tons of learning and plans for making things better and easier, but we wouldn't change our decision to start raising these magnificent little sheep.
Now on to shearing and lambing.
