Well, I guess the title says it all... Caroline called me Monday morning at 8:30 am (I knew it couldn't be good news). Well, apparently, after the flock had been checked on Sunday, Princess once again managed to get away from the flock and get herself stuck upside down somewhere and just wasn't discovered in time.
By chance, Caroline happened to have her camera with her on Saturday while out in the pasture and got this great picture of Princess and two of her triplets (the third is hiding in back).
She sure was a beautiful sheep, and I hope she did not suffer... I'm happy to have had a small part in her time on earth and cherish the fleece and yarn that she gave me. I hope she's frolicking happily in a better place... And I do so appreciate that Caroline called to tell me in person, it's a loss for her too, but I'm sure as a farmer, this truly represents the cycle of life.
Caroline has another sheep for me to adopt, and I hope to introduce you to her soon. But, this post is about Princess and my appreciation for her. Long Live the Princess!
