Once upon a time, a teenage girl got two sheep for her 4-H livestock project. One sheep grew faster than the other sheep and became the chosen one. And so that fat little ewe went to show at the livestock barn and on to auction while the other little ewe stayed at home, all a-lonely.
What to do?
They could not keep that ewe!
Fortunately for me, her family reads my blog and the teenage girl, Miranda, decided that what she would most like in the world for her lonely ewe was for her to go to live on a farm, where she could grow up and one day be a mama, and never go to an auction. She wanted to donate Ebby to the flock at Sassafras Farm!
Ebby (short for Ebony) arrived at Sassafras Farm yesterday afternoon.
She will never be a-lonely again with other sheep, goats, chickens, and dogs.
The dogs and goats were intrigued.
Annabelle and Crazy checked her out with reserved curiosity.
Ebby is a Suffolk cross and will work well with the Tunis sheep coming in the spring.
Chloe took her to her right away. Ebby is just six months old. “Another puppy, just like me!” Chloe said.
Only soon, she was begging for help, along with everyone else!
She’s a playful thing!
