More About the Animal:
Live mainly on grass and forbs. Hardy even on rough pasture. Require less supplemental feed when pasture poor than modern breeds.
Prefer flat, open country or low hills where they can travel in tight flocks.
Water and climate:
Drink freely. Need water easily accessible. Shearing all except the young of the year helps the sheep deal with summer heat. Fleece may be of variable quality and have market value.
Breed all year unless remove males. Add males in fall for spring births.
Putting males with flock in mid-October gives March births for best survival. Then can shear late April or into May.
Males as young as six months; females one year.
