I first started being owned by sheep twenty years ago today. I went to Mystic Knoll to buy Ebony, a Shetland black ewe. Then Sadie hopped into my lap so I got both of them.
Loki, the ram, did not come until the next year. He came from Mountain Niche and produced all the original ewes’ lambs.
I bought Reuben at the same time as a ram companion.
I bought Babette around the same time. I had gone to Badger Hollow for another reason and fell in love with Babette instead. She was the best animal decision I ever made.
Lucy and Garbo came from Primolana around the same time.
So now it has been twenty years sharing my lives with sheep and I still love it.
