Wow, thanks!

That's a lot to read, will start reading it tonight when the chicken chores are done and a I have a glass of wine in hand. I'm getting sheep this fall also, so really appreciate you taking the time to post this. And thanks Arcticsun for posting the first question!

Thank you!
I have loads to think about, it is a ram and two ewe, this years babies. I am going to be able to store most of it inside. Im working on how I am going to feed it. When I had Shetlands they were part of another person's herd, so I never wintered them myself. He used horse hay nets for some of them, the rest he had round baled and used four 4 foot pieces of welded wire panel clipped together... or was it 5... anyway, around the round bale. They could push the panels about, but not paw out the feed, use it as bedding etc. It was really efficient, little waste and light weight so it could be easily moved.
