New Plan

Get a sheep to live in the back garden.  Reasons why having a sheep in my back garden would be a good idea -

  • It would save me lots of money on wool
  • It would be locally produced, organic wool and of the finest quality
  • I would not have to mow the lawn again
  • The sheep would be a friend to the little dog and the fishes in the pond
  • It could be a business investment as I could spin the wool and then sell it for lots of money to pay for the sheep’s upkeep
  • I could knit it a scarf and then sell photos of it wearing the scarf for Christmas cards
  • It would feed itself on grass so would be very cheap
  • In the winter it could live in the Mr’s shed – so it would have the added benefit of getting the shed cleared out
  • It would mean I could find out what sheep nuts actually are
  • We could take the sheep for days out to Kielder and it could play with lots of other sheep
  • People would visit and make a fuss of the sheep so it would become a talking point

Thinking about it, maybe I need two?

I see no down sides to this plan. Perhaps I need a sheep or two as well…

in all seriousness, my wife and I have bought a chunk of property, heavily wooded, and it is chock full of poison ivy. we are pretty seriously considering buying a couple goats just because they love to eat the poison ivy (with no harm to them) as well as other nasty brush.

I say go for it!

cheers,
