    I just found new plans for a sheep feeder that I may put together this fall. It has a covered top for that you may use it outside and the sides are solid so debris won't get into the fleeces. I got the plans from a poster on the Jacob list. I'm really excited about using it because clean fleeces are important if I want to sell my extras to handspinners.

    Those sheep coats they have on that website look really interesting. They're so inexpensive. You couldn't make them for that! Does anyone know if they're any good or not?
