The Good-bye Girl(s)

"Well, look who's comin' through the door; I think we've met somewhere before..." That would be Tammy Knight of Wrensong Farm, who I met at Black Sheep Gathering. She loaded up Bella in that very rig, and is coming to get two more of my sheep as well as to deliver Inky - bless her heart!

After the initial paranoid Aussie barking spate, Jackson clearly approved of Rechel's and Bevin's new owner. He also liked Tammy's dog Kyllie, a Belgian Tervuren with as much or more energy than he has!
Tammy makes me sound like the shepherd equivalent of an aggressive drug pusher on her blog, but I think Bella, not me, sold Tammy on her first Shetland. Well, OBVIOUSLY it wasn't me, because in the two short months since BSG, Tammy has gone on to accumulate quite the colorful flock of Shetlands all on her own! Rechel and Bevin are supposedly the last additions for awhile, although I have heard rumors about spots being added later....

Brian didn't want me to sell Rechel and Bevin, and had to hug little Bev good-bye. Then Bev and Rechel joined the two Jacob sheep in Tammy's trailer (a new ewe for Tammy and a new ram for someone else) for the trip north to Wrensong. Good-bye girls, and be good!
Next up: the newest addition to my ewe flock!

That's it for now at . . .

Such a cute picture of Brian hugging Bev!

I hope Brian got a little extra attention afterwards, saying goodbye is tough...

Hey thanks for stopping by my blog! Small world too... Those two spotted sheep in the trailer came from my place. ;)

Those shetlands sure look friendly, my Jacobs are a bit more wild with the exceptions of "Violet," and "Stephanie," two sweet hearts.

I'm adding you to my blog roll, I love to learn about new breeds of almost anything but especially sheep and horses. I'll be back!
