If you like lamb, but don’t care to bother sheering sheep, consider raising a few hair sheep. The editor of our sister publication, Grit, just bought two Katahdin ewes (Katahdin Sheep Come To Osage County). Sheep will take care of some of your rough mowing chores, saving time and gas. There are other breeds of hair sheep, too, such as the St. Croix or Barbados Blackbelly.
