I have been chosen to watch after three barbados sheep. (one is a blackbelly barbados) They look just like goats except for their horns and their tails. There are two males and one female. Their owner is fixing up his fences so I don't know how long it will take. My question is, do I feed them what I feed the goats (whole kernal corn, show goat mix, and hay, along with pasture?) They are kinda wild and the female won't come up with everybody else. She kinda stays off to herself. I got to take her feed mix and place off to itself. Any helpful hints would be appreciated. Oh, and do the male rams breed with the goats? I'm new to sheep, I have 45 goats, but sheep are a different story.
