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.
