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.

Rotten Ford? But what an amazing fleece he has.

I love the name Stella. I may need to borrow that one.

I agree with Karen Anne I'd love to run my hands through Rotten Ford's fleece. :)

Very nice...sheep have such a peaceful feeling about them. I wonder if this is true or not?? They sure seem peaceful and adorable.

I love sheep, and I loved the post about your cats too. Did I tell you that cats were my first love? I wouldn't have let them go either! :-)
