    Default Adorable Suffolk Sheep in VA Seeking New Digs

    Posh, Baby, Sporty, Scary, and Ginger Spice (aka The Spice Girls, aka, my 5 Suffolk Sheep) are seeking a new farm where they would happily provide their grazing and companion services free of charge.

    The Spice Girls are very friendly and are very low maintenance. They are the easiest pets I have ever had - less work than a gold fish. They do a good job maintaining pastures as part of a rotation program. And they are very cute!

    Will only consider a very good, no kill home. Located in Northern Virginia near Leesburg.

    Bump for the Spice Girls.

    I'd love to have the sheepies. But I have a truly neurotic horse boarding here that Freaks Out at the sight of goats, so he probably wouldn't like sheep much either.
    Save lives! Adopt a pet from your local shelter.

    Aww man, I wish you were closer. We just got a pet lamb we named Jello and are wanting a few more pet sheep so he will have buddies. Good Luck finding them a home

    I may know of someone interested (excellent home - kids are into 4-H stock shows - definite no-kill, lifetime pet home) .... please send me pics at oldenmare@yahoo.com..... of course, I'll probably fall in love with them and want them for myself.

    Sigh - what type of shelter requirements do sheep need, anyway (or will a big run-in be adequate???

    I LOFF sheep. Unfortunately, I live in a neighborhood and I doubt my neighbors would share in the sheep loff. Wonder if I could sneak them into the association covenant...

    Hi,

    Wow, thanks for the great response (Posh Spice of course was never worried and said her fans would be ringing my phone off the hook). There is one COTHer who has offered to provide a completely amazing home for them. But I have been in touch with everyone who has expressed interest and will circle back if for some reason the kind COTHer changes her mind.

    Thank you everyone!

    The Spice Girls went to their new home today and will be embarking on their new careers as working mommies. : )
