Here's a quick break down on what we have and why.

5 Finnsheep - 3 ewe's, 1 ram and a weathers

2 Dorset - both ewe's (meat sheep)

We bought the Finnsheep because they are said to lamb in litters, with twins to quadruplets being the most common. Their naturally polled and have short tails. They are also a smaller sheep supposedly with less fat. That means better meat and I don't have to wrestle a big sheep when sheering or trimming hooves. Hopefully next spring we'll have our own lambs and won't have to buy any Dorset's.
