Are they being milked? Or readied for shearing?

I didn't know people drank sheep's milk. Or is it for some other purpose?

drinking - it's very good for you...
check out what the bsda has to say.
It is much higher in total solids than either cow or goat milk and contains up to twice as many of the minerals like calcium, phosphorus and zinc and the all important B group Vitamins

Yes, but does it taste like sheep smell? [I think goat's milk tastes a little like goat smell... ick!... although I love chevre.]

It's funny, but I hear that a lot... I don't taste the "goat smell" in goat cheese. It's funny that people don't smell the "cow smell" in cow's milk. I can assure you, from living on a dairy farm, the cow smell is no bed of roses either! ;-)

And hey, all of it must be better than Heather Mills' recent campaign to get us to drink rat's milk!! (As a proud owner of two pet rats, I can safely say, "No thank you!")

Little does she realize how energy-inefficient that would be. The cost of actually doing that on a large scale would be astronomical. Hell, why not drink human milk? Since we grow humans anyway.

People seem to forget that we drink cow milk because cows can produce a lot of it. Market forces at work.
