shep·herd·ess·es Plural


woman shepherd: a girl or woman who looks after sheep
Is that what I am?
I have been raising sheep for the last 14 years. Does that make me a shepherdess?
It has been an adventure, to say the least. 
I have learned a lot.
My girls have been raised on a farm. They have a different outlook  than I do. I am a city girl- gone country.  I feel like I am still not quite in my element at times.  The girls have known  nothing else.
I wonder how many years I will have to raise sheep before I will feel like a "true" shepherdess?


  1. I have had sheep now for 2 years. I have had them before but it was just not the right time for me. Now I feel right and I do feel like I am a sheperdess. Especially when they are all following me or I call them and they all come running to me. Or I hear a distress call and I go help them. I love my sheep. They calm me when I am stressed or feeling bad. They make me happy. They are my flock and I am their shepherddess. And I have that on my business card! Along with milk maid.

  2. I love sheep too.
    I knew when we decided to take the plunge and move to the country that I would have sheep.


Thank you for stopping by the farm!
