…what this Jacob ewe looks like. A medieval jester!


Note: Chickens in the Road is moving this weekend to a new dedicated server. This change should make the site load much faster and enhance your experience here. Bear with me as the DNS will resolve at different times for different ISPs. For a period of time, the site will exist on two different servers. I post every day, so if you don’t see a new post, that means your ISP has not yet resolved the DNS and you are still seeing the site on the old server. Please bear with me. The site will resolve to its new DNS for all ISPs shortly. Thank you for being here!

    You’re right, she does. I’ve been so inspired by you that I was up late last night googleing trying to find cotswold sheep in my area. :O) (I didn’t find any, but I did find Angora Rabbits and Alpaca)

    Wow, you are so right. Such a different, but beautiful face.

    Enjoy your day.

    She is such a beautiful creature. Can’t wait to see more of your flock!

    Sadly, my eyes started to glaze and cross when I read a little more. That happens when somebody starts talking about computer stuff I do not understand. The best of luck with whatever you are doing, and I do hope you don’t break a nail.

    Oh, do your new sweeties like cookies?

    We’ll forgive most anything while the new server gets set up Suzanne, never fear. I must warn you though since I’m a ‘Geek-Girl’, if you (or any of your geeky minions) break a nail while getting the blog transferred to a dedicated server, you’re doing something wrong. :ladybug:

    Wow! Do you plan to hang bells on the tips of her horns? Can’t wait to see what kind of hats you make for the new kids on the block! I hope Clover doesn’t get jealous of their apparel. And the farm photo of Annabelle “helping” you is adorable.

    Good luck with the “move” – I’ll be right there behind you!

    I THOUGHT IT WAS ME…..DON’T GET FANCY OR I WILL NEVER CONNECT.
    MY GRANDFATHER RAISED SHEEP AND THE BUCK HAD HIS OWN PEN. HE NEVER RAN WITH THE HERD. HE DIDN’T HAVE A NICE DISPOSITION EITHER.

    You are so right, she does look like a Jester. Perhaps that should be her new name.

    Hope the change goes smoothly for you.

    I had been introduced to cottswold sheep in the Beatrix Potter mysteries written by Susan Wittig Albert. See this website for more info http://www.cottagetales.com/books/HawthornHouse.shtml
    They are set in the beloved Lakes District of England where Beatrix eventually owned huge amounts of land and left it to the National Trust in the U.K. I now want to visit those places since reading the books. Anyway in the books Beatrix owns some cottswold sheep, in deed a very old breed and even in those days a heritage breed. I would settle for growing some “old” roses. That’s my idea of live stock that I can handle other than my cat and hopefully soon to be adopted dog or pupper from a shelter.

    OMG you are SO right!! I about died when I saw the resemblance! Hope you’re enjoying your new sheep as much as I’m enjoying reading about them!!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
