Suffolk Sheep are available in Sunshine Islands.
They are a type of livestock that live inside the player's barn on Ranch Island. Healthy sheep can live for up to 5 years.
Own a regular sheep and ship a piece of s-quality wool through the shipping bin. Once this is done, Mirabelle will sell the Suffolk Sheep through her shop for 12,000g.
The best way to get a sheep to produce s-quality wool is to have it win first place at the Sheep Festival. It is also possible for a sheep to produce s-quality wool if the player scores exceptionally well on the shearing mini-game.
Sheep must be fed every day. If sheep are put outside, they will eat planted grass grown on the player's farm. They will only eat mature grass, so upkeep of grass is essential when letting your animals graze outside. When sheep are inside the barn, they will eat one piece of fodder per day.
As you increase friendship points with your sheep, the quality of wool will go up. Shearing, brushing and interacting with your sheep are all good ways to increase friendship levels. Animals can also be left outside in good weather for additional friendship. Playing the petting mini-game when given the chance and playing the shearing mini-game also provide additional boosts in friendship, although these happen at random. Utilizing Wonderfuls on tools like the shears and brush can also expedite the friendship process.
If you use a Miracle Potion on a sheep, the sheep must not be sheared for the potion to work. A sheep will give birth in 16 days, and it will take another full 16 days from the birth for a sheep to be full grown. Sheep will live for approximately 5 years if they are properly cared for.
Sick sheep must be cured with Animal Medicine, which can also be purchased from Mirabelle's.
An adult sheep can be sheared using a pair of clippers every 5 days. The wool from a Suffolk Sheep is much more expensive than that of a regular sheep, so it takes two additional days to grow in. Wool can be sold as is or turned into yarn, if the player has a yarn maker. The wool and yarn from a Suffolk Sheep yields much higher profits than those of a regular sheep.
