Never Miss a New Post.
Welcome! So, what do we mean when we say HOLY SHEEP? We're a couple of shepherds who truly believe that unless the LORD builds the house/farm/flock, we build in vain. So when it comes to raising sheep and bringing "the cutest sheep in the world" (really, that's how the Valais breed is known!) across the continents to Middle Tennessee, we're dedicating this wild and woolly adventure (and work!) to the LORD. Our "breed-up" program began with a flock of four "F2" ewes. We were blessed with seven "F3" lambs in the spring of 2023. We'll be breeding-up this Fall (2023) in the hope of producing 2024 "F4" domestic purebred ewes (but we love the boys too!). Yes, our sheep are still in the process of "becoming" full-fledged Valais Blacknose Sheep...just as we're in the process of "becoming" worthy shepherds. Holy Sheep! Heaven help us, and may all the Saints, for whom our sweet and spunky little lambs are named, pray for us!
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away.Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep."
“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flockand one shepherd. ~ John 10: 11-16
"Good Shepherd, you have a wild and crazy sheep in love with thorns and brambles. But please don't get tired of looking for me! I know you won't. For you have found me. All I have to do is stay found." From 'Entering the Silence' by Thomas Merton
