Sheep Shuffle: Fall 2011

Garrett and I got up early on Saturday morning and headed to Beloit to meet Lori in order to transport 4 sheep to Cyndee Wolfe, who was going to be meeting us north of South Bend, IN.  Our timing was perfect and we pulled into the truck stop/sheep switching station, parked the truck and walked to the back to find the tailgate had popped open on the way.  HOLY COW!!!  Panic attack.  There were 2 rams (tied with halters) staring at us and one little ewe in the background pecking around them.  We were freaked out.
We got the sheep from Lori loaded and we were off again...............
ON the road again.........

2nd stop...South Bend, IN to deliver sheep to Cyndee from Lori
 Then we got to the second truck stop/sheep transfer site and got Cyndee's sheep loaded without incident.

Seriously???  Fruit acres??..........this amused me for some reason.
Who was the genius that named this place?

Hmmmm, I can't seem to find Michigan on this atlas.  

Yep, that's sheep alright. (arrival at Stephen's)

That which angers us, controls us.

  1. Great pics Kelly! I was surprised how well the one at the Grill House turned out. The waitress did a great job getting everyone! I miss the sheep already -- just glad they are with someone who likes them! :-) I'll be looking forward to seeing their lambs! WE all sure had a great time with you and Garrett!


He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
