Meg's mum Posted March 27, 2006 Report Share Posted March 27, 2006 I made a decision based on some wonderful advice I received here to NOT expose Meg to sheep unless I could get her work on a consistent more than perhaps once a weekend basis as sheep are not practical on our sensitive wetland property. So what did I do this weekend? Hubby and I own an airplane. We went woolie spotting over the neighborhood. My downhill cross stream neighbor has pastures and a barn and no visible livestock. There are hobby farms all around us near the flanks of all the Issaquah Alps, but 6.5 miles away there are 80 Romneys and a bunch of angora goats, and 14.5 niles away are the Bullock Romneys - 800 head. I sent a note of introduction to the first farm to explain what kind of a nut case neighbor they had checking out potential future job sites for her possibly talented 5 month old puppy. I'm going to wait a bit and see if they even answer me before I try it again with the larger farm. If one or more local farm would be willing to have a guest worker several days a week, then I will see if Meg shows promise, and have her trained. Then hubby or I can drop her off before work and pick her up when I'm off. That would still be out there in the future, but at least I don't have to stop counting sheep in my dreams yet .
