Anyone who has lived on a farm knows that there is more than enough work to go around. That work extends to the animals who live there too. On our mini-farm, the sheep are the stars. Their big job is to grow beautiful wool and let us sheer them to make sweaters, and socks, and wool hats and scarves. The chickens lay plenty of eggs. Chloe the cat keeps the rodent population in check, and for the most part, the dogs just keep us amused and comforted. Our only job is to keep everyone healthy, fed, and watered.
