The Shepherd and The Sheepcote

"When dusk falls, shepherds lead their sheep to a safe place to spend the night, where wolves or other predators cannot prey on the sleeping sheep. Usually the shepherd builds a stone enclosure with a small opening and he calls the sheep one by one into the sheepcote for the night. When all the sheep are safely inside the sheepfold, he will lie down in the opening so that nothing can come in the only door to harm the sheep.

The Shepherd always protects The Sheep!"

Gettin' to be THAT time!

Now that fall has arrived it is getting to be sheep breeding season for those of us hoping to have cute little lambs doing races next spring.  We bred most of our ewes this year, both Icelandics and Shetlands and ended up with some very nice ram lambs that are looking for a job to do rather than head to someone's freezer...however that is a possibility also.  Please contact me is you are interested in any of these beautiful boys.  They are ready to go.
