They are so pretty Mike.   :) :)

Raising these sheep are what we decided we wanted to do in retirement and we have never regretted starting.  :)

I spent almost half of my life in Pensacola so I know what kind of "soil" you have in Mobile.  :)

Your garden looks great.

We had two that we started from cuttings when we lived in SC but we left them behind when we moved to Tennessee so I don't know how they did longer term.

We are still a month or so away from lambing but we got a couple of pictures of the sheep.  I don't use our dogs to bring the sheep in when they are this close to lambing and they don't get stressed when I go out and call them to me.  Bringing them in to the handling area entails going through three paddocks and four gates so the dogs would have had them stressed out by the time they got in.  When I walk them in they are calm and don't fight to get away when you do a lot of hands on with them.  They have their winter coats now and the only way to really know their condition is laying hands on them.  They are in excellent condition and we only needed to worm three of them. We pulled fecal samples of several just to make sure but they look and feel good.  The one picture has a couple of the yearlings up on top of a round bale.  I'm surprised they can still jump that high as fat as a few are getting.

They can be annoying but I haven't had any aphid problems so they obviously have a good side.

We haven't had them together a lot because of our guardian dogs but they do well together.  The friends that we bought the calves from have sheep that they got from us.  They seem to bond together really fast and have a couple of calves that stay with the sheep rather than other cows.

Once we get to the point where the calves aren't afraid of the dogs we will let them run in the same paddocks.  These boys have been around dogs but not dogs as big as ours are.
