I've got myself some sheep. I started out with a little blackbelly ram lamb, and then a year later I got a couple yoes. Now I've got twenty head,some blackbellys,dorpers,a couple wool sheep, and a few crosses. I checked on them yesterday around 5:30 p.m. It was hot as blazes, but those woolly sheep were not fazed by the heat a bit. Some of the hair sheep were breathing a little heavy, but they were all grazing away. Sheep , so far I wish I'd of got some years ago. They are the first thing I've ever seen that would eat a dog fennel,just cause they wanted to! The thing I wonder is does the wool help them stay cool. I've heard the old folks say that whatever would keep out the cold, would keep out heat.
