On to Greener Pastures

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.

  3. I came over from Benny and Lily's blog- my first time here.
    I'm so sorry about April- I lost one like her last summer (a "special needs sheep") and even though I knew it was coming, it was so hard to not call her name and look for her in the field.
    Sleep tight, sweet girl....

  4. Awwww April. You had such a GOOD home. Now you have moved on to greener pastures IF that is possible :0)

  5. April certainly has been alive by your photos & descriptions, Karen so it's an 'ohhh' to see that she is gone. She's had quite a life in your/her green pastures and quite a life in your blog.

  6. Always very hard to lose our animal friends, especially those we've known a long time. Be good to yourselves today.

  7. It must have been a really hard day for you but an easier one for April. I am so sorry..I know how much you loved her. Hang onto you good funny memories:)

  8. Oh Karen, so sorry to hear about April. I know what you mean about not having to make that decision. She sure lead a wonderful life.
    Thank you for sharing her with us.


I love to get comments, so don't be shy!
