Remembering Poppy

Our oldest ewe walked with quiet grace and dignity to a corner of the pasture a few days ago, lay down and passed on.

Poppy was never a prize winner. Her fleece was better suited to rugs than to sweaters, but she had personality!

Shawn used to cal her Queen Lizzy because the little *mou* made by her black markings around her mouth reminded him of that famous painting of Queen Elizabeth I.

She'll be remembered and missed.
