Wovember - Day 11 - History

Where would I be if this hadn't happened?  




Wovember - Day 11 - History . 🐑 At the end of October, 1992, I rescued a lamb who'd just been born at the stockyards. Knowing what I know now...that lamb should never have lived. The stress, the sanitation, did he even get colostrum...? To add insult to injury, someone who knew absolutely nothing about sheep and especially lambs picked him up at the *end* of the day (!). Luckily I found a vet who'd raised sheep himself and he did his best to help him get started and assured me "He'd be just fine". Months later, he'd look at Punkin and say "Well, I never thought I'd see you make it this far." . 🐑 I didn't know anything about sheep or wool or spinning or knitting or weaving or...I just wanted to save a baby lamb...who probably ended up saving me...and the rest is history. . 🐑 #wovember #wovember2019 #bottlelamb #destiny

Punkin opened an amazing door that unleashed your talents in a way that we all get to enjoy - so glad you found the sheep and wool life that touches the hearts of all of us!!

What Renee said! I posted my "History" post yesterday because I didn't read ahead on the prompts; not sure what I'll do for today. Almost quit the whole Wovember thing yesterday after we had to put Dozer down; wasn't sure I had the emotional energy to keep going. One step at a time....
