We offer "assisted living" for the oldest flock members. (Thecrazysheeplady in KY has Del Boca Vista for her geriatric friends). If you are getting to an age where the other sheep push you around or you just need more time and better hay in the feeder you get moved here. We even divided it further into two smaller groups because Pickles
Pickles, Fiesta, Kahlua and Gilly
The adjacent pen houses Dollar, India, Bunny, Ruby......

With the passing of Drambui and Alexandria, Bug has recently picked up the unwanted title of 'most needy old ewe' by becoming quite arthritic in her front legs and having trouble getting around. (Kind of like being the oldest man in the world -you don't really want the title but you don't want to give it up either!!!) She's now on anti-inflammatories and we're hoping for a boost in her ability to get around without hobbling.
And Kittin is still in kitty assisted living in the wool shop. She's fat and happy and impaired to the point that it's not safe to let her try to handle the rigors of being an outside cat. But with the help of Aunt Julie's newest catnip toy she's trying to manage. ;-)
