I got my first group of sheep, (4). I have them tamed pretty well, but when you go approach the gate they come a runnin. My question is, What would make a good hand treat when they meet you at the gate? Horses like apples, and I tried a corn shuck, they ignored that.

Our goats and sheep love old bread, crackers, cookies,doughnuts, and stuff like that. They like it and that way it doesn't go to waste.

almost anything they can get in their mouths. But they are very partial to regular horse treats. There are many flavors and they like them all. Only problem is they can be a little pricey.

My sheep (and goats, too) also love the little alfafa cubes you can buy in 50 lb sacks at the feed store. At around $7 a sack, they're a cheap treat. I usually split up the cubes (they sort of flake like a tiny bale of hay) into 3 or 4 pieces and give each sheep a piece...a bag will last a long time. Don't feed too much alfafa, though, as it'll make 'em fat.

My roses like alfalfa pellets, too.
Every three or four months I give each one a handful.
I keep the 50# sack in a garbage can with a lid. the flowers?    Posted 07-08-2003 at 09:45:02       [Reply]  [No Email]
