Hello and welcome, Bianca. Where are you located? It helps, when you ask questions about things, to know where you are, at least by district or region. :)

Tell us more about your land and animals.

Thanks Ruth
We are on a 4.5 acres in Flat Bush.
Currently we have 2 Wiltshire ewes, (almost lamb time for them) and a horse. :D . I would like to know where I can find feeding places to buy horse feed and grooming brushes.

:)

Welcome, and good luck. Be very, very careful with sheep and horses. Horses love to play football with sheep when the owner is not looking. A neighbour swore on heaven and Earth that her horses never chased sheep, but every afternoon they did. She just wasn't around at the time :-(.

Can I ask where you buy your sheep feed. And what brand is the best. And how much do you feed them during lamb season and after.

The most nutritious feed for sheep is short, young grass. We still have young sheep that will not eat hay or pellets. The old ones that wouldn't either died of starvation, or were culled because they did their lambs very poorly.
So until you know that they will eat multifeed pellets, don't buy lots of them. PGGWrightson or Farmlands will have something designed for sheep.

Hi Bianca..Live Wilti's and find them fine with the horse ..who tends to treat anything less than he 16.2 hand with distain and wouldn't bother to "play with them".
If you are feeding the horse the sheep can get what the he gets....dont overfeed as wiltis seen to run on the smell of an oily rag and can get fat.
Used to be able to get a horse maintenance mix which was crushed badly, corn and wheat ( no oats ) and could feed it to the horse, chikens and sheep but lost the supplier
