Bye, Bye d'Jango


Since we are keeping Cimarron & Gizmo (aka Wizard) John is putting in a fence to keep a little bit of space between them and the girls. As you can see, it looks like a government job - one guy working and three guys supervising...

He has almost finished their little barn - all he has left is the ramada (get it...RAMada...) so they can have a little shade or cover from the rain as they sit outside and survey their vast domain.




But, we can only keep the two and as with all things on the farm, someone has to go...

and d'Jango - your name's on the ticket.

This is the hardest part for me - it kind of keeps me from getting to know some of the sheep because I know they will not be staying.

We had some great hopes for this little fellow, but as you can see, instead of turning out, his horns have started to turn in - not a good thing, if you're a ram in the wild. Not a good thing if you're a ram on the farm - wethering would have stopped it, but with only 3/4 of an acre, there's no room for a wise ass wether - even if he did have lovely wool...


One last tousle with his buddies. Bye, Bye d'Jango. It was nice to know you.

Yup...if raising livestock or farming were an easy thing, everyone would be doing it. Sometimes the realities of life do raise their ugly head and hard decisions have to be made.
I know it's hard...will be thinging of you. :)
