Okay, so I didn’t get the sheep. The fence is a mess thanks to the big white beast next door. Bear has managed to undo $300 worth of material and time. If you raise livestock the one thing you learn quickly is that sheep and goats are escape artists but mainly they get their heads and limbs stuck quite easily trying to do stupid things.
Fortunately when you talk enough about what you want to do you the right people show up. Dennie and Helen have been super awesome. I have about 60 pounds of fine wool in the back of my truck ready to go to the mill.
There’s a new mill in Texas….Independence Farmstead and the owners are so awesome to do what they do. A mill is a lot like any business. You work 7 days a week and hopefully don’t go completely insane.
