Cover of The Backyard SheepI love sheep almost as much as I love goats. We raised Miniature Cheviots on our small Ozark acreage for 14 years and we still have a non-breeding flock of Miniature Cheviots, a pair of Katahdins and a Dorper-Katahdin cross, along with a lone Scottish Blackface ram.

I’ve written two sheep books, The Backyard Sheep for Storey Publishing and Hobby Farms Sheep for Lumina Media; I plan to self-publish more sheep material in the future.
