I can answer most questions about raising, breeding, feeding, showing,typical illnesses, pregnancy, birthing, bottle feeding,showing and sheering sheep. I have raised sheep for show and production for 20 years. The breeds of sheep I am most familier with are Crossbred, Suffolk, Hampshire- basically black face sheep. I deal with the classification of meat sheep over bred for wool sheep.
I have raised a flock of sheep for 20 years on our farm. Very involved in 4H, FFA aspects and their rules, jackpot shows, state, regional, county and local shows.
Experience is my best creditial however, I have a college education and have taught many classes ( in other catagories), so I am familiar in the ways of teaching others.
Many breed awards- champion and grand champion awards in Kansas for the past 20 years, showmanship awards at local and state level in Kansas.

BD: So Sorry for the delay in response, we just conclude our county fair and I have not seen my email in a while. Please forgive me. There could be a number of reasons why your lamb has a bald spot
Hi Erik, I am so sorry for the delay in my response to you. I have been out of the area with no service taking care of family crisis. Please accept my apologies. To your question about the best breed
Diane White muscle disease is really difficult to treat and results are not favorable. Keep the lamb hydrated if at all possible and I would add a shot of vit B12 as well. If she is stiff and acts like
Hi Julie, Yes, I mean Angora sheep! :) And yes there are angora goats and believe or not, angora rabbits!! I was working off the photos you sent; length of wool and the texture that I could determine
Hi Julie, From the length of the wool, it would appear to be the wool of a older sheep, not a young lamb. More than likely angora breed. Not being able to tell the texture, that is my best guess!!
