Sheep Report

Andrew is happy to let you all know that his sheep are doing well! 🙂 (For those of you just joining us, you can see more about this story here.)

Sheep 004c

Salt (the boy) is quite a bit smaller than Pepper and will probably be stunted his whole life. Such is the way sometimes with orphaned animals. Andrew and Daddy (Daniel) built a small light-weight movable shelter with wheels on one end so that Andrew can move them around.

Sheep 010c

At this time, the sheep are in the yard during the day and inside at night. Although they are fast outgrowing the water trough in the kitchen, so hopefully with the warm weather on the horizon they’ll soon be outside full time.

Sheep 008c

Almost forgot to mention – the pictures were taken by Andrew’s older brother, Travis. 🙂

Wishing you all a great weekend!

Happy Friday!

    Sheep are so awesome. We are on such a small amount of land that we are using them as our “cows” lol. I love playing with them. I’m glad Andrew is having such a wonderful experience with them. 🙂

    Your lambs look great, Andrew! Keep up the good work!
    And great photos, Travis!

  4. So cool. I love the look on his face with that lamb over his shoulders. He seems to be a good little shepherd! Speaking of which, have you guys seen that book: Sammy and His Shepherd? It’s by Susan Hunt and I think you can get it out of Ligonier (RC Sproul’s) ministry. It’s Psalm 23 in chapters that shows the gospel from the point of view of a sheep and his shepherd. Anyway, not a commercial, just made me think of it. 🙂

    Another good book is Mountain Born (can’t remember the author). I read it to my kids three times and cried the first time through. If you like sheep it is a great story.

    Nice pictures. Sheep are great! I hope he has good luck with them!

    Keep a close eye for worms on the ram lamb. Weak bottle lambs tend to get worms easier then most lambs. If you move them around they should be ok though!
