Paula is also a lecturer and conducts workshops in the United States and Canada on raising sheep and spinning wool for a living. Together with her husband, Ross, Paula has been raising and sheering sheep, and spinning and weaving wool for over 20 years on their farm in Washington.

    Very good.

    This book is a good book. There are a lot more book including chickens and goats. If it is your first time raising any type of farm animal you should check and see if they have it in the series. You will not be disapointed.

    I borrowed this from the library, as well as several other books

    I borrowed this from the library, as well as several other books. This book covers a lot of the topics with easy, down-to-earth language. It explains things well, and gives many ideas on how to raise money if you are going to raise sheep. It's one I'm adding to my wish list to get when I can.
