What is Ethical sheep husbandry?

Ethical Sheep husbandry to us,  is has multiple elements:

Sheep Health:

-maintaining a parasite resistant flock thru pasture rotation.

-regular hoof trimming and care, as we are in a wet, non rocky environment

-a dry environment to rest, or take shelter

-providing fresh water daily

-providing free choice salt and minerals

-proving a the appropriate nutrition thru pasture and hay

 

Reproductive Responsibility:

-With our Icelandic sheep, our foundation ewes and ram, are not related, to ensure genetic diversity. When we breed, we will bring together unrelated pairs.

-We will not practice, line-breeding.

-We will maintain the number of sheep that our lands can support.

 

Wellbeing:

-protection from predators

-care when shearing
