The sheep have been better entertainment than the tv. They are Katadins (haired sheep) and right now they are shedding and look plain silly. Their woolly hair comes out in big clumps. Freckles has managed to scrape himself a flat top going under the blackberries.

We got the sheep to mow the acre of lawn. All the grandkids either live in town or the big city. They think the sheep are wonderful. It is each child's grand ambition to get the sheep to eat from their hands. The trick of course is to stay very still for several minutes, a feat that defeats many of them.

Very heart worming story, like you, I thought sheep were not to smart. Well we now know at least one who was very grateful. That story brought back memories of my 1st. 4-H projects that were sheep. Skeeter

Thanks for the welcomes! I thought I had blogged my sheep and dog story, but don't see it. Here is the condensed version. Last week the little dog slipped his collar and went after the sheep. I started shrieking for him. The oldest sheep came running towards me with Buddy hot on his heels. He leaped the barricade where I feed the sheep, and ran straight past me. I caught Buddy on the fly, tossed him in the house and before I could get off the deck, Freckles the sheep had turned and was thanking me by touching my arm with his nose. No one can tell me sheep are stupid anymore. Our Freckles was pretty clever to lead Buddy back to me.

Welcome here Cathy to Old Fat Farmers and Others. Why you have more animals on your farm than I do, all I have is an occasional wild one when I catch them in my live traps.

Hi and welcome to our little group

"We are what we repeatedly do; excellence then is not a single act, but a habit." - Aristotle



Don't be content with average. Average is as close to the bottom as it is to the top.

Ok, I had to check you out just because of the name. I am over 50, and have an acre and two sheep. The city grandkids thinks its a farm.

My Dad farmed in Kansas using horses. My grandpa raised horses for the calvary on a homestead in North Dakota. So I grew up on farm stories even though I lived in town.
