A bittersweet day...

We sent our first starter flock of 2009 off to their new home on Saturday. It always makes me sad, to see my sheep leave their home, but happy to know they have a wonderful new place to live. This flock is moving to a century farm not far from us, beautiful old barns and outbuildings, ample pastures. They will be so spoiled! It's especially fun to seen new shepherds, how much they enjoy the sheep. When we first moved into our home 15 years ago, there were sheep living across the road. I thought they were serene, but they just didn't catch my interest much. Looking at a flock of white sheep is so blah, compared to looking at a flock of sheep with a multitude of patterns and colors! Icelandic sheep are the best!
