Farm Memories – Part Two

Many people don’t think much of sheep, but we loved our woolies. We brought home three Romney ewes; Liesel, Marta and Gretel. They quickly made themselves at home, calling to us whenever we emerged from the house, demanding love and affection and food. Especially food. Like everything else we have ever had, they were spoiled rotten. But oh, they were so much fun to have around.

Not long after we brought the girls home, we added Gouda to the mix. He was a big, handsome Dorset ram. The Romneys were a good dual-purpose breed, Gouda was good for meat, and together they made some pretty spectacular little lambs. And lambing season was the most exciting time of our farming year.

The sheep were to be our main focus. Not only were they gentle, small and easy to handle, but they fit into the back of our minivan, which was a requirement for everything we brought home. Well, everything except the horse…

  1. is it really only four years ago..it seems so much longer! I looked at the photo of Rob, he has not changed very much, still got that cheeky grin and sparkle in his eyes…The children look so young but then children do grow up very quickly and can change in a short time, but they are still lovely.
    I recall seeing photos of your sheep, but I think it was when you were saying goodbye to them…..a sad time but a good experience.
    have a great day my friend and love to you all

  2. I wish so much that my granddaughter could have the experience of not only seeing farm animals but also holding them as these sweet children are doing. What lovely pictures!

  3. The sheep were so cute. I wish we could have been around during lambing. We may still get that chance one day! The kids were so cute carrying them around. I got to watch baby calves being born when I was young and they were really cute too. We couldn’t carry them around, though! I’m a sucker for baby animals. Especially some baby kitties, my first love!!! šŸ™‚
