We lost our little Evie this afternoon to pneumonia. In hindsight we know now that she had the pneumonia a few days ago and that is why she miscarried her twins. The vet gave a valiant effort late last night in treating her aggressively, but sheep are notoriously unlucky with pneumonia. She was 11 months old.
We will be placing her fleece from this year (sheared in early March) into the Maryland Sheep and Wool Show in May. I have high hopes for it because she may have one of the best fleeces on the farm. I think she will clearly beat her daddy who has been the Reserve Grand Champion of the show previously.
