Getting started with sheep? Jump-start the learning curve and avoid common mistakes by spending a day with experienced shepherds—and a lively flock of sheep. You’ll learn practical handling skills, how to be prepared for the Top 5 Sheep Problems, what equipment is needed...or not!..., learn do’s and don’ts for purchasing your sheep, and find valuable resources for continuing education. Youtube is great for many things, but only a live sheep can teach you the skills of catching, restraining, and performing essential management tasks.
