sheep necklace

March 4, 2016

I came out to do chores last night, and there stood one of my ewes with a hay necklace around her neck! I said, “Lamby Pie, is that ewe? Have you been to Hawaii? Where did you get the necklace?” She just stared at me like I was the crazy one. It is the little things that make me chuckle. This crazy sheep made me laugh out loud.

My ewes are near the barn. They share the feedlot at night. They eat their grain and hay, then rest on a straw pile over night. The are content and tame. They are all expecting lambs in about thirty more days. I was hoping that my little rouge ewe hadn’t been up partying all night….Even if she is eating for two or three!

Today, I made repairs to a piece of horse drawn equipment. I ran a few errands and shared a few cups of coffee with friends. I sat next to a wood stove and soaked up some warmth and conversation. I accomplished the task at hand, rested my mind and refreshed my soul. I was a great day…even if I didn’t get a necklace!

Pretty sheep!

They are Katahdin hair sheep. Right now they have all their wool. Soon they will shed it all off and be slick like a goat, until next fall. We have had them for years. We recently sold most of the flock, keeping just a few to mow around the sugarhouse….so that I don’t have to do it.

My daughter considered those sheep! They are hard to find around here. Fascinating. Thanks!
