Sheep need regular supervision. You will need enough time to care from them all year round and a willing and able person to look after them in your absence.
Preventative care is essential; learn to administer vaccinations, give wormers, trim feet and dag (remove soiled fleece from around the anus)
Do not be tempted to have more sheep than you can cope with.
Sheep are covered by a number of regulations which you must observe.. .
