Yesterday we said goodbye to V Creek Snowflake. Snowflake was our oldest ewe. She would have been 11 in the spring. We babied her this winter, feeding her extra rations, and checking and double checking on her in the coldest weather. Snowflake had come to us rather shy, and although she never seemed to want to be pet the way some of our other sheep did, she was friendly in her own way.
Snowflake will live on in the three offspring she has which live at Emancipation Acres: Emancipation Inara, Emancipation Abbie and Sommarang Eva.Snowflake’s lambs never disappointed. She was an excellent mother, who consistently produced excellent lambs. I am glad to have her lambs to remember her by.
We will miss you Snowflake!
Snowflake and her 2013 lamb, Abbie.
