Re: Painted Desert sheep -- there is a place here that raises and sells them lol. I've considered them but some of the herding folks here claim they are completely nuts and a pain to work with and care for as a result.

Sheep are the dumbest animals on the face of this earth.
Rams can be nastier than cat crap, so yeah, neuter!

My mom's boyfriend has a hobby sheep farm, you couldn't pay me enough money. Not unless they come up with a breed that weighs like 25 pounds each
My mom's boyfriend's ram is a seriously scary animal, he'd LOVE to kill you if he could just get the chance. If Shelby his BC wasn't around he honestly would not be able to let the thing out of it's pen, he'd never get the stupid thing back in the barn!

Soay rams top out at 75 lbs, ewes are around 55. They supposed to be delicious and quite hardy, which may compensate for being over your weight limit

ETA: I bring you the Ouessant:


Wouldn't be surprised if they sell for $1,000,000 in the US as novelty pets.

And these are both short-tailed breeds, so no docking.

^that, completely. Blaze was chasing one in a large fenced area one time, and the silly thing rammed her head into the fence and got it stuck. Really?

They are such dump creatures. I will say, though, that it seems the more you spend with them, the easier they are to move, per se. The more they are around people, the more they follow you around. At least that's the way it works in herding. They're called knee-knockers.

I don't know about 25lb sheep...but Shetlands are usually under 100lbs and supposedly pretty friendly/docile.

Of course if you get Shetland Sheep them you must get a Shetland Sheepdog. It's only right.

And btw sheep may be dumb but so are beef cattle. And far less likely to kill you. I consider sheep a personal safety improvement lol.

Unless they are fleece/wool sheep. Shearing is NOT in my future. (famous last words)

Barbados sheep shed their hair on their own! A few other haired sheep do too.

Yeah they are pretty much dumb as a box of rocks. I find it slightly charming though LOL.
