used in a variety of ways such as grass mowers and weed eaters in vineyards and orchards and 4H projects. They are small in stature
and are easy to handle. Their small size and efficient metabolism requires less acreage per animal compared to other breeds of sheep.
Thus, they are referred to as being "easy keepers." They are excellent mothers and are known for having multiple births. The breeds of
