RE: Even more sheep

We'll keep 3 for the freezer and we'll try to sell the rest as soon as
they're weaned. It's going to be crowded in there pretty fast. I would
like to sell the ewe lambs as breeding stock, they have good genetics
for multiple births so hopefully someone will want them.
I sure like having them but we're not set up to keep more than a few,
plus hay is really going up and there is no grazing here.

How long will you keep them, or are you going to enlarge your flock?
