April passed on to greener pastures sometime last night. I thank her for that, as it was really obvious that her end was close. She saved me from that awful decision that most animal owners have to make at some point or other.
She wasn't a pet sheep, but I guess was the next thing to it. And then with all the personal attention she had been getting the last few months, it was harder to think of her as 'just a sheep'. She was one of a set of twins, the first bottle babies we ever had, and she was a character.
