For the month of July, which is the entirety of the Renaissance Festival that I participate in, we tossed out the idea of me being a Renny version of Little Bo Peep. This is just a preliminary character, so it might change depending on our cast and what characters need to be filled.
I heard it was possible to rent one, but I'm not sure how to go about it. Don't know anything about sheep in general, so I want to educate myself.
The festival is in nine mile, Wa, and there are the following predators: raccoons, coyotes, some birds of prey (owls for one. There is a huge one that hangs around), and we used to have a problem with neighbor dogs. But that might be fixed soon if they continue to come on the land and attack the peacocks.
We were thinking of putting it in the geese pen (the geese have a seperate housing space we can keep them in), or we can fix up another area for the sheep. I don't know how tall I should make it, or what not. I'm thinking of just setting up a movable pen on the grassy area for it to graze, and maybe sending it home each day as faire is on saturday, sunday, so that I don't worry about predators. The coyotes and dogs are my main concern.
Also, there is potential for it to be led around. Is there any particular leads I should use? Or, how does one lead a sheep?
