Goodbye Mr. B.

Bombadil, our dapper if slightly boneheaded polled ram, has gone on to a new home at Stone Ridge Sheep Farm in New York State. There he will preside as the one and only ram around. Should make the big guy very happy-- especially after this four ram winter. (Yes, I know our is waaaayyyy to many rams. It just sort of happened that way. Circumstances converged.)

At times, I think I am too much of a softie to be a shepherd. It was harder than expected to say goodbye to Mr. B.

But, we still have two rams too many around here, and so we may be saying a few more goodbyes before spring is over.

I think I'm probably too soft hearted to be a farmer too, but I'm going to try. I did manage to re-home our extra rooster. But I get attached to animals pretty quickly.
