Yesterday our oldest sheep died. She was Primolana Gwynneth, and she was 13.5 years old. She was looking pretty skinny but was eating well. The day prior she could not walk well, and she died in the night. I am hoping she did not suffer and knew she would not make it through the winter.
She was a great ewe. I did not get her until she was 7 years old but bought her from Kim Kerley because she was thought to carry spots. And she most certainly did. As she was older, her fleece was never great, and she certainly was not friendly, but she and Lewis made the most beautiful lambs for us. I hope she enjoyed her life here and her retirement.
