Bye, Bye Blessa!

SheepThrills Blessa left for a new home last week! Her new mum and dad, Karen & Ray, live in the Globe area of Arizona and were looking for a friendly breed of sheep to add to their "Menagerie". Karen had been in touch with Michelle who graciously recommended to Karen to contact me as we are so much closer.
Well, Karen and Ray came for a visit and fell in love with Blessa. And from what I've heard since they took her home, she loves them as well. Win/Win!
While they were visiting we walked into the end of the barn where I had the ram lambs. Karen didn't want Blessa to be alone and was telling me about a person in their area who had rescued Barbados Blackbelly sheep including a wether if they wanted one. As Karen and I stood talking, I noticed that Ray was singled out by our own Lucius Vorenus, a very friendly ram lamb. The next time Karen mentioned the wether from her acquaintance Ray shook his head no. Then he said he'd rather have Luke. So, soon Luke will be joining Blessa.

Below are pictures of Blessa both shorn and with this year's fleece just before she left. Can you see the smugness behind that expression? From what I've heard she has taken reign over all things barnyard and child, as well as Karen and Ray.





Thank ewe, Michelle! And thank ewe Blessa! I can't think of a better Shetland Ambassador to introduce that area of Arizona to the wonderful Shetland sheep!

She IS a beautiful sheep, and it sounds like she is doing a fine job as an ambassador - as did Luke! (Whom we need to see photos of as well; ahem.)
