Sheep 101

The University of Vermont is holding a day-long course for small farms interested in getting started in sheep. It's a basics class over viewing breeds, care, nutrition, diseases, and other common points of interest. It'll be held in three parts of the state, and one not too far from me. It looks like a good way to start taking steps towards my shepherding goals and meeting local people with like interests. So, not sure what date it is but if anyone wants to join me for a Vermont sheep weekend, let me know. Could be fun, out in a cold barn learning to pick hooves and all. I'll make sure to post photos and information when I have it. Hey, just cause I left one farm doesn't mean I don't have to set up a whole new one here. More to come, that's for sure.
