The Moms and their Lambs (Catherine, Aesop, Candy, Tim,  Alice, Anne, Lucy, Ali, Lila, Lola, and Lucinda)
Lila, Lola and Lucinda
The Moms and all their "Babies"Heading for the Barn
As I said, the sheep have grown, not quite as big, but almost as their moms. Also, feeling bad for the unnamed, I named them all this morning as I took their pictures. So....Cathering begat Aesop and Candy; Anne begat Lucy and TIm; Lila begat Lola and Lucinda; and Alice be gat Ali. Here they are in all their glory.

  1. Why, why oh why did I do this
    All these little ones to be fed, housed and cared for
    Looking to me to protect them, maybe even to love them?
    Whatever came into my mind?
    Whatever crept into my subconscious…?
    Whatever made me think I could do this?
    This job of being a farmer
    The sheep, three dogs, the ram, free roaming chickens,two mules Molly and Sally,and Henry the goat
    But I love these creatures of God
    It saddens me to see my lonely white duck waddling
    His doggie best friend having passed away
    A tender young teenage ram
    Where no critter will befriend him
    Should I bring him into my house so he’s not so alone?
    How will I ever make this work?
    Where will the money come from?
    Is this not a younger man’s dream
    And was it an older man’s foolishness to have dreamt this dream?
    Ah…so much for second guessing
    I will till this soil, plant my seeds, water my crops
    And here love will grow
    This farm that feeds my soul
