Help me, oh wise MeFites, to find this lost game of my youth. I'm looking for a board game, from the late 70s/early 80s, that had cattle ranching as a theme. As you went around the board, you could buy ranches, then buy and sell cattle. There may have been an element of driving the cattle to market too. The detail that stands out the most is the sheep ranch. If you landed there, and another player had sheep on it, you could shoot them. My sister and I both remember playing with our dad, and all shouting, "Shoot the sheep!".

Despite my best googling I can't find out if it's legal to own a sheep as a pet. I live in a residential neighborhood in Morehead City, North Carolina. I'd like to own a sheep and keep it in my backyard. To love and pet and cuddle. Thanks for any help! [more inside]

This is a Fermi Question, I only need an approximate answer: How long would the yarn spun from a single sheep's wool be? Is 2 miles reasonable? What's a good lower bound? [more inside]

Sheep, Goats, Mini-cows?
I have about two acres of fenced-in land in Ohio, I already own two goats (one fainting goat
, and an angora) and some chickens. Trying to maximize enjoyment and profit, what animals should I raise, good suggestions in the past have been, nubian goats, (sell the milk and meat) sheep, rabbits (reproduce fast, good profit), ect. What should my next purchase be, the more creative the better.

Where could I purchase an animal-sound-in-can toy in Vancouver, BC? You know, those small cans that you tip over and upon return to the upright position they moo/baa?

The last Tony Hillerman novel, Sacred Pig, used a Navajo term that translates into english as "She who tells a sheep which blade of grass to eat". This Navajo word would be useful for me to know. I have tried to find it by scanning the novel with no success. Does anyone know what this word is with the correct pronunciation?

I have fallen in love with sheep and would really like one for my backyard. Is this doable? Personal experiences are welcome. Feel free to talk me out of this if it's a really bad idea. [more inside]
