A year ago, 1 week ago! I started my sheep journey, I saw a bottle lamb on facebook, and said I've had bottle calf's why not a lamb?
So I bought chops! Obviously the name was fitting!
He came inside a few nights haha! Loved getting fed 3-4 times a day, took him into Tractor Supply with me the first night I got him! As he got older he loved to play and hit you in the back with his head when you weren't looking!
Who knew I would love sheep as much as I do cattle!
It was an adjustment for sure, new things. to learn and still learning.
Fast forward a year and I now have 12 sheep, and still wanting more!
Update on chops, I sold him at an auction, about two weeks ago and bought a new ram!
I know everyone is sad.. I am too!
But so thankful for the journey chops lead me on, and my love for sheep.
Hey, it's me again Catlin. Just wanted to give you a little more detail about what my plan is for " A Growers Granddaughters" blog. My intention is to keep you up to date on my life adventures in agriculture such as research projects, a little gardening, and my grandads farm,Lively H, which inspired me to pursue a career in agriculture. This blog is not only for you to read but also see all the behind the scenes on the farm, and educate you more on agriculture topics. If you have any questions, please comment, or email me, If there is a topic in agriculture you are unsure about, shoot me and email.
