There are many reasons why people might choose to breed sheep. One reason is the wool. Sheep wool can be used to make clothing and other items. It is also a popular material for felting. Another reason to breed sheep is for their meat. Sheep meat is a healthy, lean protein that can be used in many different dishes. Sheep can also be bred for their milk, which can be used to make cheese and other dairy products. However, I am curious about using sheep as pets in their early growing years. Would you have a pet sheep in your rural house?
