Grazing Gulf Coast Native Sheep

video

Here is a little video clip of young Gulf Coast Native sheep grazing together.

A family was watching the sheep, and the parents joked about getting some.  They were surprised when I told them these ordinary-looking sheep were part of a conservation effort and on the critical list.

The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy has information on the breed here: http://albc-usa.org/cpl/gulfcoast.html.

The forty-second skein I've spun was Gulf Coast Native wool.
