Sheepish: Two Women, Fifty Sheep, and Enough Wool To Save The Planet by Catherine Friend

Everyone once in a while you find a book completely off your radar – yet you are captivated by the title, the cover… something. And you find you are better for having read it. ~Sheila

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.
Highly recommended.

Now I need to dig into Catherine’s other books:
Hit By A Farm
Compassionate Carnivore Minnesota Book Award in General Nonfiction, 2009

  1. I love the title of this book! I have a friend who has sheep, but way fewer than 50 and her stories are fun so this book sounds like it would be a good but unusual read.

  2. I read this book when it first came out and loved it! Hit by a Farm was just as good!

    I’m so glad you’ve returned to posting!

Hmmmm... what do you think?
