Oh, poor Daphne. I have her daughter Delilah here, but I don't think I will tell her her mother is no longer eating grass in your sweet pastures.I am spinning up the last of Daphne's wool this summer.She has left lovely wool behind to remind me of her. I am so sorry to read about Daphne, but she lived a long life for a sheep and never lacked for lots of hay and grass. What more can a sheep ask for?

Always sad to lose a member of the 'fam' and feels wierd to walk out and not have them out there along with the others. She definitely stood out from the crowd at your place. =)
