The Reluctant Farmer

This is my long suffering (his words, not mine ) husband, Gil, who ended up becoming a sheep farmer, when all he really wanted to do was fly radio controlled airplanes. I couldn't manage a flock this size without his help. Thanks honey. Also featured below is his sidekick, Goz, our canada goose, who doesn't know he's a bird. Long story.

Feykir is settling in well to life at our house and I can't believe my good fortune in having all this warm weather for housebreaking. Trix and Charlie have adjusted to another body competing for mom's attention and as long as he leaves Trix's ball alone, life is good. Here are some photos from playtime today.

Welcome Feykir

Here is a photo of Feykir, a 9 week old icelandic sheepdog puppy. He came to us from Laurie of the lavender fleece, in Midland Michigan.
