Sheep are one of the animals that can be raised on the farm in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life. These fluffy animals are known for their soft coat, which can be sheared to get wool. Read ahead as we talk more about raising Sheep in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life.
How to get Sheep
To get Sheep on your farm, you can order them through the farm’s Ledger. Both male and female sheep cost 3,000G each. Once ordered, they will be delivered to your barn the next day. They will arrive as lambs at first, which will then mature into adults after a few days.
Alternatively, you can get more sheep through breeding with your own pair, or through the Order Breeding option in the Ledger. Sheep can only get pregnant if you have at least one available slot in your barn.
Taking care of Sheep
Sheep need to be fed daily by either placing fodder in their feeding troughs or letting them graze in the pasture on clear days. They also need to be snuggled with to raise their affection, and brushed to make sure they stay clean and healthy. Avoid letting them stay outside under the rain to prevent them from getting sick.
Once they turn into adults, sheep can produce Wool, which can be sheared using the Clippers. They can only be sheared once every 5 days. The amount of wool that you get will depend on the clippers that you have and the sheep’s health, while its quality will depend on the animal’s affection level.
Taking care of a pregnant sheep and a lamb
When a sheep gets pregnant and is about to give birth, its cheeks will become flushed, and you will have to move it over to the pen inside the farm. Once it gives birth, you will have to name the new lamb and assign it its own feeding trough. The lamb becomes an adult sheep after 8 days.
Wool is considered the most lucrative animal product that can be sold in SoS:AWL. With how little effort you have to put into maintaining and caring for a sheep, wool can become a passive income generator for the farm. Both female and male sheep can produce wool. The higher a sheep’s affection is, the better the quality of the wool they produce.
Here are the prices of the wool depending on their quality:
Pink Wool – 3,000G
Blue Wool – 4,500G
Gold Wool – 6,000G
The amount of wool that you get will depend on how healthy the animal is and how high its affection is. This amount can be doubled if you use the Goddess Clippers when shearing their wool.
