Sheep from the left: Eddie (our big, farm-born commercial breeding ram), Tex (our pureblood, registered Powell Ranch Dorper ram), and Louis (our “wether” pet).
Their livestock guardian dog, Turk, is in the middle. Turk is a gentle giant Anatolian shepherd with the sheep, but we hear him warning away all coyotes and feral dogs throughout the night. He is one of the “boys” and loves his job. The sheep love him, too!
