gone

WVF Pandemonium 4/7/1995 to 9/9/2007
Yes, Pandemonium couldn't wait until we got home from Jefferson. She sucumbed to the same heat wave that sent Panda on this summer.
She was a good old girl, with a wide nose, fatty face, and short legs. She liked our daughter best, I suspect she liked tobacco. She microned at 24 in her later years....she was a grey spotty with a little eye make-up in the fall. Pandemonium had twins and three sets of triplets for us. She lost her ability to feed her lambs herself, but faithfully raised them...bringing them to the fence whenever she thought it was bottle time., and yelling for them...and protecting them from intruders by positioning herself at their tails while they ate.
A faithful mother she was preceeded by several of our favorites....Lefty and whitey, whiteytoo, and mopsy. She is survived by her son, Spots...our yuglet flecket breeding ram, daughters: Two step, Flopsy, Angel, and Miracle....Polka our yuglet flecket, and Do-si-do Polka's daughter a yuglet sokket. At other farms there is Babaleena, a yuglet sokket and mother of Grandson: McGyver the famous yuglet flecket ram at Sheepy Hollow in Wisconsin, and Zorro, her great-grandson...the original hst of Bluff Country. Pandemonium even has a great-great-granddaughter in Canada. Grandsons and grand daughters could fill this page with descriptions of yuglets and sokkets and fleckets in both moorit and black.
We will miss her quiet looks, and grudgingly given affection. She was a special old girl right out of Dailley stock. Pet your old girls for me, you never know when they are ready to leave for that big green pasture. Do you suppose there will be sheep in heaven?

Oh, I am so sorry to hear about Pandemonium. Glad to know she has so many fine descendants out there...

If there are no sheep in heaven, why would we bother going there? I KNOW there have to be sheep there. They are God's creatures too! I'll pat Zorro tonight. This post just reminded me that I have a couple of ewes who are getting up there in years now too, I better pass out cookies tonight...

What a wonderful legacy Pandemonium has left. What a fortunate ewe to have spent her life with you!
