Paid for ? "Gabriel’s two hundred and fifty sheep were not yet paid for. He knew that, in order to make a success of the farming business, he had to make sure they produced a large number of healthy lambs." Does it mean that Gabriel would get paid ( or rewarded ) for his farming work until his sheeps produced lambs. if no lambs were produced, Gabriel would not make a success of the farming business.

No, Gabriel will not get money for the sheep. He has to pay money for the sheep first. He has bought the sheep but not given the money for them yet. Before he can make money from his sheep he has to pay the money. He may have borrowed money from the bank. Hope this helps Jane :) When his sheep start having lambs he has to pay back the bank first before he starts making his own money.
