Welcome, Henry

A new ram has joined the Edgefield flock. Henry is a six year old Ile de France ram, who will take the place of Buddy, my old Texel who is now shooting blanks. He came to me from Todd and Kelly Shuttleworth of Shuttleworth Farm in Westfield, Vermont. He was an even trade for one of my Coopworth rams.

A photo of me with my sheep

If you ever wondered what I look like, here's a picture. It's a few years old. I've lost some weight since it was taken. I'm the one standing next to the John Deere gator, and that's my now-deceased guard dog Big Guy in the lower left-hand corner. In this image, I have just finished feeding a group of sheep on the farm I used to run in Amherst, Mass. If you look very closely, you can see Joe the Border collie in the back of the gator
