Well,maybe. You never know until you try something, whether it will work or not.
2. Why did you choose Canadian horses?
Canadians are our heritage horse and like the people who inhabit the land, we are strong, capable, intelligent, willing and loyal. Oh yeah....the horses are also real purdy.
3. How did you find out about Karakul sheep?
I like to research things. When most people are vegitating, watching TV, I am working, but I never think of it as work. I spend a lot of time on the computer finding information and reading about everything that interests me. Google is my good friend. The karakuls came up over and over in searches when I looked for an all round sheep for meat, fiber and milk.
4. Do you have a partner or are you doing this alone?
A partner would be nice, but I have not found the one who wants to retire to work on a farm in
Alberta. Know anyone?
