Sheepiversary #15

Today it is 15 years since I have been owned by sheep.  I purchased Ebony and Sadie from Mystic Knoll Farm in Coupeville, WA on July 25, 1998.  Ebony has passed on, and Sadie is old and blind.  We have purchased a few sheep in these 15 years, but of our flock of 36 sheep, 12 are descendants of these two original Shetland sheep.

    I didn’t know sheep lived that long, and what a long line descendants from the two original sheep. I have raised goats, but now have chickens and ducks and one horse along with a big garden. What kind of wool is that sure is beautiful? Ellen from Georgia

      Thanks Ellen! Some of our sheep live that long. Shetland sheep are pretty tough sheep. It is Shetland wool and it is beautiful!
