Farewell Mabel, The Matriarch of our Flock





Mabel was one of our first Border Leicester's. She is the ewe on the farm that has been here the longest. She has been around the block and knows the drill when it comes to lambing shearing, and other sheepy things. She has played the role of the flock matriarch for many, many years..

Most of our Natural Colored Border Leicester ewes come from her line.




To our surprise, she made it through the last couple of winters., but she was not up to facing this one and passed on yesterday.

Hands down my favorite sheep! She will be missed.

  1. That's rough. :( It's amazing how the life of one wooly critter can prompt so many memories.
