I miss those good old days of sheep in the backyard in ways. Especially when we first got them and they were so small and cute and the excitement about growing our own fleece was high. Now I have a closet full of about 100 pounds of fleece and I'm not quite sure what to do with it all.
I gained such knowledge and experience on the farm. Helping to birth sheep and milking a goat helped me to be deeply in touch with the circle of life and how delicate it is. I wouldn't trade up those dirty days of farming for anything.
