sheep for orchard
We are thinking about getting sheep for our apple/pear orchard in order to graze the grasses and fertilize. We have considered other animals as well, but we really would like to get sheep. I have interviewed several people, and have gotten two different answers:
1. sheep are fine. They are not like goats, they won't hurt the trees.
2. unless you're trees are mature enough for the branches to be out of reach, sheep will destroy your trees.
Anyone want to add to this debate?
