Now when you sit in our kitchen there is a new sound from outside. Along with the river's constant gurgle and the crickets and cicadas racket, we've now added the bleating of sheep from up on the mountain behind our house.
We've purchased sheep from a few different places and we're now up to 16 and expecting some more lambs soon. Most of these are hair sheep (with hair like a goat), a breed which is much better suited to our climate than the woolly ones. We want sheep for their meat and for the free lawn care service in our mahogany plantation.
