    We have been making preparations for bringing Ringo to his new home. He will have Pasture #1, so he can have a share of the sheep barn.

    This view of Ringo’s Pasture is from the front corner and the fence that goes along the driveway.

    Standing in the same spot, this view is along the front fence.

    Ringo has a night pen with a share of the barn. We thoughtfully provided a nearby chicken coop with a 4AM rooster wake up crow. His water bucket is clean and waiting on his arrival.

    Most importantly, @Mike CHS and Teresa will be happy to know that we have stocked in an ample supply of Ringo’s favorite snack.

    We debated hauling the stock trailer, but the truck would only get maybe 10 MPG. We debated buying a camper top, I found one on Craigslist, it almost fits. LOL It is installed on the truck, the flashy chrome rails are off and on a rack. I have a husband grumbling about his ugly truck. What this poor man has to put up with!

    Last week we had a brake job done, rotors, bearings, the work$$$$. Tuesday we took eggs to a friend and he pointed out oil spots on his clean white concrete driveway. Oh NO! We hit the panic button and took it to the shop, telling them we are leaving Friday morning for Tennessee, PLEASE fix it! It had a leaking oil cooler gasket. While they had it torn down, they replaced the oil cooler. Mo Money! $$$$$$$ We picked it up this afternoon. Better it happened here at home than somewhere between here and Tennessee. BJ’s ugly truck is ready to roll!

    I can't open the pictures but your description sounds good. Will he be able to see other sheep? As gentle as he is he doesn't handle isolation well but as long as he can see others, he is fine.
