A friend needs a temporary place for her two sheep. What are things to think about if I am to even consider boarding them on my place?

The sheep would be in a paddock with alpaca pastures on three sides so there would be opportunity for nose to nose contact. How much effort is it to clean up after them? I assume that they do not have organized poop piles like alpacas. How long after they leave must I wait to allow alpacas back into this field?

Thanks in advance for any advice anyone is able to give me on this.

You should contact Andy & Ann Merriwether, I think she once posted that they have sheep along with their alpacas.
