There are About 900 different breeds of sheep
Terminology: EWE----Female sheep of any age.
|Couldn't resist taking this picture. There is one in every crowd!|
Fun Fact: President Woodrow Wilson grazed sheep on the White House South Lawn. The wool obtained from the sheep was sold to raise money for the Red Cross during World War I. The flock included "Old Ike," a tobacco-chewing ram.
They also had a calf that we called Shrek because she had some frost bite damage to her ears and tail.
It didn't slow her down a bit. In fact she had a little bit of an attitude.
After the tour we went to the house for a potluck and meeting.
Our next tour will be at the Prairie School Farms on Oct 1.
