Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

The Race Is On

Get Ready---Get Set---GO!

And the race is on...

Can sheep fly? Evidently!



Freddie takes an early lead....

Persia edges out into the lead on the corner

The pack is a blur coming out of the corner
(while the rams look on)

Tom T. and Eve leading out of the turn

Oops....standoff.

And down the homestretch...


That's all folks!

Hope you enjoyed lamb races as much I do. The lambs were running so hard and for so long that they were panting!

I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's quite a ritual for those with sheep. I always feel like when the newest lambs reach lamb racing stage, that they are doing well and thriving. It's a hoot seeing those teeny tiny ones running like wild things. This is one of the reasons it's hard to get WORK done around here, with this kind of distraction! ;-)
