Last night Jonathan and my farm helper Olivia went with me to Dummerston,VT where we picked out a beautiful sheep named Snowflake - she is a Shetland/Border-Liecester cross. She originally belonged to Lorna McMasters who lived in Chesterfield, N.H. who sold some of her sheep to Enid. Enid and her husband have a wonderful farm and absolutely beautiful sheep. It was really hard to pick out just one but I knew I needed a very mellow sheep to put in with Winnie. I'm attaching pictures of the two ewes to this blog. When I walked out to the barn this morning, Winnie was in one little shed and Snowflake was in the other little shed. I went in the pasture with my camera to try to get pictures but they are like having two dogs and just followed me around. They are both such sweet sheep and I'm so happy with my two new girls.
Darcy helped me last night move the Moms and lambs to the front pasture. On Thursday evening two little lambs got out and went into my brother Alan's garden!! Yipes, they could have been lamb chops! They are so far so good, staying in this new pasture. This morning Darcy helped me move the three boys into the show pasture and they are very happy. So life is good, everyone has nice eating and so I'm headed to bed with a big smile on my face. When my sheep are happy, then I'm happy. Good-night from Maybelle MaMa.
