Living with Sheep

Living with Sheep
Everything You Need to Know to Raise Your Own Flock

I just got this book, by Chuck Wooster, and thought I’d mention that I think it will be very good for beginning shepherds, including those that choose Icelandic sheep to raise.

For one thing, he too has a heritage breed (Navajo-Churro), so the advice isn’t all about domesticated breeds. I probably liked the book a bit more than normal because he’s in Vermont, fairly close to me in NH, so his examples make a lot of sense to me.

It’s a very practical book, written with a lot of common sense, and I wish I’d read it two years ago. It’s a basic book, but a good one. Very good for someone considering getting a flock.
