The Next Chapter...
"Mom says I shouldn't call this "The Rest of the Story" because that implies that the story ends here."
The story, most definitely, does not end here.
"You may not recognize me, because I'm wearing a disguise, but this is Dream talking..."
Sable demonstrating "no eye contact" as she reassures Tanqueray that she's no threat.
Tanqueray brings in reinforcements, none-the-less!
"I know that this might be a shock to you because it sure was to me!
Mom has decided to sell the place. "
"It's one of the hardest things that she's ever had to do and she sure does cry a lot, but Mom really believes that it will be the right thing for ALL of us. I'm not so sure! I kind of like my little buddy, Jack Daniels, following me around. Mom says he has to be sold, anyway, because he's a boy, so I guess that's not a good excuse..."
"Isn't he handsome? Jack Daniels and the rest of the rams & ram lambs are all for sale. If you're interested, call Mom because they're gonna go FAST !"
Captain Morgan and Jack Daniels (black & white, HST)
"Now the hard part..."
"Since Mom won't be living in the Bluff Country anymore, there's really no reason for us GIRLS to stay. So, Mom found new, "forever" homes for us."
This is the reason I haven't been posting recently. I didn't know how to say it. It hurt too badly to put it down in black and white (or whatever color the type shows up on my blog!). I know that there is no way that I can continue to run Bluff Country Shetlands by myself. I'm too far from family to have on-going help with my animals or the care and upkeep of the buildings and the property. Recent health crises have forced me to face the fact that I can no longer do this by myself.
So, the property will be sold. I hope to have it sold by the end of July. Of course, that means that ALL of my sheep and chickens must find new homes as well. The pigs have already been sold.
ALL of the ewe lambs are sold with the exception of "Tequila". She's a beauty, so I know that we won't have trouble finding a loving home for her. There are still three ewes left to lamb (Chance, Kiss & Promiss), so more lambs may be available soon!

THE GOOD NEWS:
(Yes, there really IS some!)
I'll fill you in, tomorrow, on all the exciting things that Mom's got going.
It WILL be good!"
