I agree that donating Bellweather to the Navajo Nation would be a good thing. Get a tax receipt from the Tribal Council to deduct her value from your taxes. The Navajo will have a use for her - either as meat or to produce for their flocks. Contact the local Tribal Council office and they will let you know how to go about donating her. They probably will have someone that needs a ewe, or a meat supply.

Good idea.

Life is all about changes, and those dang changes really throw a wrench in your plans and derail everything for a while. I was comfortable in my beautiful area working on finishing my basement and building a new chicken coop and maybe start a new fencing project when I get a call asking if I was possibly interested in applying for a new job up at the Utah/Idaho border. With everything going on with coronavirus that’s been a long drawn out process but in the end they offered me the job with a huge raise and we’d be a few minutes from my in-laws. So we’re in the process of downsizing as we prepare to move by the first of August. Sold the chicks and some sheep and are getting rid of the mountain of junk we’ve somehow accumulated over the last few years. So just an update to say I’m alive, we’re healthy, and hopefully we can find a house with acreage quick.

All I have to say is MORE WATER!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!! So happy for you. If you need more sheep, call Travis Blackburn in Axtell UT which is mid state. He has good White Dorpers - both commercials and registered. He also trucks his lambs to Texas once a month so you might be able to get yours on his truck. He also knows many of the sheep producers in Utah.

You should be able to find reasonably priced acreage up there with farm buildings on site. Make sure you have water right for water lines and irrigation. So excited for you and your family!!!

Congratulations! I hope your move can go smoothly and that you can find a place in the country where you can continue to raise all of the animals you want.
