Grapevine resident is a real shepherd on the side

SheepGrapevine resident Mohammed Benali lived in town for about 13 years before he decided that he wanted to do more with the grassy land he owned.

“Cows need a bigger space and more food. Same with horses,” Benali said.

So, he decided to raise sheep. He grazes them on a grassy parcel of land that he owns close to his home.

“The kids have been tending the sheep [since they have been out of school because of the pandemic]. But I look after them, too,” he said.

Right now, Benali has an adult sheep and a lamb for sale, which cost $185 for both.
