Catherine and her partner Melissa, Catherine details the challenges associated with farming sheep that you do not necessarily think about when you decide to have a sheep farm. You know… such as, making them go where you want them to go and the occasional escape. And the fact that Sheep should be sheered. And the opportunities come when their birthing schedule timing does not coincide with your plans and they do this in the middle of a cold Minnesota winter.
You know… stuff like that.
Catherine Friend writes an adventure of a book with great humor as she and Melissa work through the ins and outs of sheep farming (as well as her love/hate relationship with wool).
I adored this book. I absolutely loved the entire book and laughed throughout many of the happenings as Catherine and Melissa figured out their roles as sheep farmers, and of course I rooted for the little sheep that had rough starts. I love d this book so much that I passed it immediately on to a friend who is a veterinarian and a big time animal lover and she loved it too.
