No lambs afterall!!!!

Can I cry now???????????

Nope, my precious cargo from Mary Ellen made it all the way to the airport, but my lambs are too healthy and too fat...with crate, a pair weighed more than 70 pounds. Too big to go 2 to a crate. And Mary Ellen and I are NOT insane......she didn't ship 6 lambs in 6 crates at a cost of $330 PER CRATE! Thankfully. So, Mary Ellen has some GORGEOUS ewe lambs that are now for sale, no thanks to many things that caused a week or more's delay on my part getting them sent up here...........crappolla..........I am soooooooooooo dissapointed.

Someone or someones are going to be VERY lucky indeed. It just wasn't my turn this year to be lucky!

oh NO Suzanne!! How terrible!! What will happen now? will you get any?

I have decided to sell Windsprite as I'm keeping one of her might want to ship her up there? She'd be free to you :)

well plus shipping of course ;)

Oh Garrett! It WAS horrible! No, none are coming...I'm afraid they are already too big to fly at a reasonable cost. And Windsprite - oh I would love to have her. BUT, the problem with shipping adults is that they have to have tests done on them and all be negative before they allow them into Alaska. I can double check, but I believe it's TB, Brucellosis, and definately Blue Tongue - the only state to require BT, Fish and Game doesn't want BT going through the wildlife up here. Oh yippeee skipeee! So, I'd also have to pay for her health testing as well as health cert. Fun, eh?? But I like Windsprite very very much! So let's talk about her more via email, ok?? :-)
