My Sheep Show Family Is the World to Me.

Even through I've only been to 2 fairs in TN. I've met a lot of people that have my interest of showing sheep. I now have some other sheep outlets not just the Young's. I'm overjoyed that I have my sheep family back. yay. Next year if I have sheep I will be showing them next year at both of these shows. the most popular breed of sheep in TN is probable the Southdown or Hampshire's. I really want to get a few different breeds when I get sheep again. not just one. hopefully I will be able to do that once we have our own land and space. it will be a year since I first met the Young's in person because on Sept, 1, 2012 I take my 4 ewes to there house to use one of there rams to bred my ewes.

IT"S OFFICIAL! NO MORE SHEEP! Kevin died 8-30-13

It's OFFICIAL! I didn't have any sheep left. Kevin died today between 2pm and 4:45pm. I'm sad because if he got could've stayed  alive for one more month we could eat him.

Sold 8 ewes today 7-8-13

well I've taken 8 ewes (Megan, Jolene, Jackie, Maggie jr, Emily, Elaine, Karen, and Kristen) to Auction today. It went very well. I didn't even cry yet. I only have one sheep. and he's being eaten in about 3 weeks ( 20 days). I need to finish my shropshire story book. than I can fill it out and then when I get more I can start another book with the new breed. I'm at peace with my decision.
