Hi there my name is Coleen Newlon, but everybody calls me Coco.
I just wanted to put up a quick post about my sheep Marianne and the shelter I built for her.
The shelter consists of:
three pallets
some scrap
piece of wood around the property
some screws
a tarp and
some fencing that I got from our local recycling Home resource in Missoula Montana.

And the fencing is just some fencing from Murdochs a farming store in Missoula.
And some t posts also from there that I pounded in myself.
Not the prettiest shelter or the fencing but for my first time it wasn’t too bad.
Well that is all I have for now.

Thanks,
Coco

Thanks for sharing Coco.  I think it's lovely...though I admit I've never kept sheep :) (but your post has made me think about it a bit).

Hi Greg,
I really like having a sheep.
I’m hoping in the spring to have two more an ewe and a ram.
If you do get sheep, I would love to hear how it is going for you.
Keep me posted.😁

Thanks
Coco

The nice thing about our sweet lovely animals... they’re happy with shelter, fodder and a friend. They don’t need style. They’re not shallow like that. 😉 She IS beautiful.
