This week has been really busy with sheep coming and going. Luckily, the majority have been going! Ron Keener arrived yesterday to pick up 9 sheep that are headed to Indiana.
His trailer is custom made and very cool. My son had a million questions about it!
It is a double decker and the panels can be moved to make different sized pens and accomodate a large number of animals.
We were one of his first stops on his cross country trip, so he only had one goat in the trailer so far. He was a very big, very sweet boy!
He had a couple buddies keeping him company in the truck. This is a Great Pyrenees puppy that is headed to her new home – so cute 🙂
and this is Tina, one of Ron’s corgis.
Here’s our babies, that aren’t really babies anymore.
They loaded up into the trailer very easily and had a lot of room. They should arrive in Indiana next week.
Be good guys!
While I was outside loading the sheep up, Linda was trying to reach me from the Greenville, SC airport because there were issues with the flight arrangements we had made for shipping one of her lambs to me. We both spoke to several people at American Airlines and she called the day before to verify everything and we didn’t foresee any problems – maybe that was our problem 😉 The short version is that the American Airline employees at Greenville informed her that they couldn’t ship live animals from there. So, she found another flight with another airline. I can’t even imagine the anxiety she was feeling!!! Good news is that he arrived safe and sound and I am really pleased!

His fleece is nicer than I expected – always a good thing! It is very soft and has nice character to it.
I have nicknamed him the ‘Georgia Gentleman’. He has a great temperment.
I think he was a bit surprised to have to wade through the grass – welcome to Oregon!
