Bringing home our first sheep

Updated: Jul 12, 2022

We officially became shepherds! We got our first sheep from Cynthia Newton: about 3.5 hours away in Redmond, OR. She showed us how to clip their toenails, which she & her daughter did for us before we put them in the car for the drive home.

Isabela is a bit high strung and complained, loudly almost the whole way home.

Luisa & Mirabel were calmer or just more scared. Luisa participated in the complaining, but not as vigorously as Isabela.

Once we got home, we set them in their temporary home, introduced the dogs and cleaned up the van. (Note to self, next time we transport animals: tarp on the floor, picnic blanket, absorbing pads, then crate without the bottom tray. )

We are officially Shepherds!
