Okay, so here’s my solution:
Let me back up to let you know what the problem is.
We suddenly have a ton of cute and cuddly animals I don’t want to eat. My husband has been diagnosed with a weird form of arthritis that only seems to respond well to a strict vegan diet. Our sheep are meat sheep.
But the sheep are more than their supposed foodie purpose. They are distinct personalities who in many cases adore human friendship.
So here’s my idea: sheep therapy or basically sheep chill time. I’m not a therapist and don’t want to be one (I already have the high maintenance little girl to contend with).
But I’m wondering if people would enjoy coming by the farm just to hang out with the friendly sheep, goat and horse.
I’m envisioning a very quiet version of a petting zoo … maybe?
There are some concerns though. I do want to get back to writing some day. Lately I’ve had to begin training myself to be a horse trainer. I’ve had to help a few ewes give birth and our daughter has ratcheted up her boundary breaking (a common after effect of adoption) so I’m not sure how many days I could even devote to this new plan.
Any ideas??? I’d love some input from you all. Do any of you have daydreams about opening shops or selling tea online? Let me know in the comments and be sure to leave any advice you might have!
Look! My books are in the library!
