Shetland sheep have changed my life and touched my heart. They have brought me joy, adventure and serenity. Follow along as I live each day influenced by memories of my mighty flock of mini sheep ~ aided and abetted by "Bellamica", the English Shepherd,"Sable", my livestock guardian dog and "Hero" the rescue dog that stole my heart! You'll also meet many of the homeless dogs that I rescue and rehome as part of Bluff Country Canine Rescue.

I SO Have No Control Over My Life...
And sometimesthat's OK.
This is what I found when I went out to feed the chickens and pet the sheep yesterday:
Did naughty Zorro break out of his pen and get in by the ewes? You might ask.
No, No, NO!
That would be way too predictable! No, naughty DAZZLE broke into Zorro's Pen!
Since the deed had already been done (literally as well as figuratively!) I decided I may as well make up a breeding group. Alice had been standing outside the gate to Zorro's pen, making goo-goo-eyes at him again so I let her in. And Dilemma. And Chance.
I might be persuaded to add Destiny and Angel to the mix if either of them shows interest.And if Zorro doesn't have a heart attack trying to breed Alice! (I've got photos! It's hysterical!!)
This is NOT what I had planned!
It's all Dazzle's fault!
"But, he told me he LOVES me!!!"
Aparently, there will be lambs in the Bluff Country next year, after all...
There will be chickens.
And they'll need NEST Boxes!!
Check out the Nest Box Give-away at Life at a Southern Farm!
(but I'm gonna WIN! I've got this under control...)
