Things to do at An Hoa Sheep field

Feed the sheep

We visited one of the farms in the field and had an interesting time there.

We purchased a bucket of morning glory and fed the sheep there. They were very excited when we arrived and were friendly around us.

However, because Ninh Thuan sheep are raised mainly for meat, their wool is quite dirty and has an earth-yellow color.
