WILL THESE SHEEP HAVE TO GO?
https://i.postimg.cc/mrR5g5vx/IMG-1351.jpg

## <center>Life is full of hard decisions...</center>

------ 
As with my skills and time, my resources are often limited. Our land is only so big, and therefore it can only support so many animals. I think goat milk will be easier than cow milk since goats are a more manageable size, and I also think that we'll be having to choose which variety of sheep we want. Right now we have both Jacob's Sheep *and* Shetland/Finnsheep, but that require two breeding rams (one of each) and more space. 

Our land is still rather raw, and we haven't built up our pastures too much. While these wooly Shetland/Finnsheep are some amazing and friendly beasts, I honestly prefer the peculiar four-horned Jacob's Sheep, and we are leaning towards that variety of sheep as being the best ones for our homestead. In preparation for the potential departure of the Sheland/Finnsheep, I enjoyed some time with them yesterday and took a couple of photos. Here they are. Enjoy!

I have been pairing down on my animal numbers this year as well. Time, resources, ambition, and need have altered my vision a bit recently and I am finding it a bit easier to have less to worry about.

An occasional purge is essential in maintaining an orderly farm. Cycle the genetics, the land use/impact, and the tastes.

why the preference in variety of sheep? aesthetics? or is there gains in efficiency?

I think the Jacob's sheep are better for a few reasons. Wool color, horns, hardiness, etc.

I wish I had the land to have live stock, the idea of a farm aimed at sequestering carbon and making unproductive land productive is a pipe dream of mine. Would love to do it in a desert ;)

A local lady raises Jacob sheep and I love them.  Those extra horns make me feel like I'm looking at a critter from the book of Revelation.  Glad people are keeping the breed going.
