Need a good laugh?

Well, I do what I can for you :) So let's review, in our small "farm" learning process we've
1. bought 2 goats thinking we had a buck and a doe.........turns out it was 2 bucks
2. thought we got 6 hens.......turns out we had 6 roosters

and now........
3. thought we bought twin bottle fed kids........turns out we got 2 LAMBS!!! yep, Chip and Mocha are Barbado black bellied SHEEP!! What little reading I've been able to do so far they are self shedding so we don't have to shear them, but rams (which Chip would become) can become down right mean....maybe even more so than bucks (male goats). So now we are contemplating whether to keep them (part of this depends on if it's to late to castrate Chip) or sell them.........

Hope you got a nice laugh :)

OMG! Girl!!! I am laughing, I must say... they are still adorable, but good grief! It's time you caught a break!

Heehee, just a chuckle, but not laughing at you rather with you:o) I would have made the same mistake, plus you're totally expanding your homeschooling subjects this way! I hope you don't end up with a mean sheep!

Just walked into my chicken coop to gather eggs and found a big ole snake. You can have my 4 chickens and the coop...I'll never go in there again! All it will cost you is a trip to south Texas!

(p.s. I'm dead serious you want them come get them!)
