Anna was helping me in the garden today. I was industrious and planted four flower beds at the bed and breakfast house. When Anna got tired, she climbed up the stairs to the door mat and plopped herself down for a nap. She felt safe there. Funny, but that is Harley's (the big Maremma dog) favourite place for a nap too. Anna is sleeping in a cardboard box in the porch currently, but she will soon outgrow that box and be relegated to an outdoor kennel for the night. Anna is worth one thousand dollars in the Babydoll market. She is purebred and out of two registered parents. Babydoll sheep are considered endangered and rare at the current time, hence the high price tag. More and more small holders want sheep, but do not want the commercial types and are looking for miniature Babydolls. Anna will stay on the farm and continue as part of the flock until I retire and decide to sell the critters.
In the meantime, she is the most adorable little baby lamb I have ever had the pleasure to know!
