We have been given the opportunity to get some of these sheep and I'd like to know if these would be good for meat. We don't really plan to do anything with wool so we only wanted a meat breed, but if we did get a breed that is both, thats fine too. We didn't plan on getting any animals until spring but since this came up now we are comptemplating getting them now. We have a big barn so that isn't an issue but fencing would be. What kind of fencing and pen area would I need for 2 sheep? I am thinking something temporary for now and a more permanent one come spring. We have 11.5 acres and the area near the barn is 4-5 acres of grass, but I only want to pen off what I absolutely need too right now. We live in Northern Maine so I am not sure about winter housing. Would I need to heat their barn area? Also, since we get lots of snow, I am assuming I will need both grain and hay for food over the winter. Any other advice or tips will sure be appreciated. Thanks!
