Five Years With Sheep

How time flies!  It was five years ago today that I got my very first sheep, three bred Icelandic ewe lambs that I named Pandora, Portia, and Phoebe.

Three more bred ewe lambs from a different farm arrived a week later, and my flock was on its way.  Today I maintain a flock of about 35-50 adult sheep at any given time, and we're only a couple of weeks away from our 5th lambing season.

I can't believe it's been five years already.  I've learned so much along the way, but there's always more to learn.  Of course, things haven't always gone exactly as planned, but even so all I can say is, I am so happy that I got these sheep.  They are a blessing and a delight, every day.

In honor of my original three girls, today I've released a selection of cards, magnets, mugs, journals, shirts, and other cool gifts in my CafePress shop, featuring the photo above.

I have a lot of other designs on there too, featuring all my favorite photos of the sheep, the horses, the farm, and our glorious sunsets.  So check it out!
