My Albino Beagadoodle
Well I had another lamb, but my luck was not so good on this ram-lamb. First it was a ram-lamb and so nothing I can use to build my flock from. But more importantly, the lamb was not doing well so off to the Vet we went. It turned out to be nothing really. It has an infection of some kind, got some antibiotics and needed to be fed some electrolyte solution (gatorade).
Anyway as I walked into the waiting room a woman actually asked me this..."That is such an odd looking dog, what kind of breed is it?"
I should have said it was an Albino Beagledoodle, but I did not think that fast. It first struck me as odd that someone could not identify a lamb from a dog, but now I just think it is sad we are so far away from our food supply we cannot tell lambs from dogs.
Anyway I got a soft spot for this one I guess. Atlas he is a ram-lamb though so in 199 days he will have to be lamb chops.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
