Sheep Names

If you are looking to get a pet that’ll love you and bother you less, you should probably consider adopting a sheep. Often times, people think of gentleness and meekness when they think of sheep.

And if you are an animal lover, you just might end up keeping more than one once you start your sheep care journey. Thinking of sheep names is another fun thing you may also have to do, but it sure isn’t as hard as it was for Mary to name her little lamb (I don’t think she found a name yet).

Before you get your first sheep and start thinking about sheep names, you need to answer a few questions.

What sheep can I keep as a pet, and how much space do I need?

Any sheep breed can make an outstanding pet. Bear in mind; they are called cattle, so your neighborhood/town must verify that livestock can be kept as pets.

You should be mindful that while they are still young, it is the most efficient way to house-break them. If you are interested in keeping your pet sheep indoors, a  bottle-fed lamb is much easier to train, while an adult sheep is probably best to avoid.

Sheep do not need a lot of lands to keep them comfortable, much like goats. Up to a half dozen sheep can be kept on one acre, while the flocks of 100 or more on 30 acres.

Should you keep a single sheep?

You could, but you ought not.   Sheep are animals of a social nature and prosper in groups. If you’re not prepared to take up a sheep flock, that’s all right. Other fun animals such as donkeys, goats, or dogs can also be kept in the company of your wooly one.
