Tuesday 6/7 After my daily feeding this morning, we ha...

Sunday 5/29 Today I traveled to Wooster, Ohio for the Great Lakes sheep show and sale. I stopped in Eaton on the way and picked up a portable auction block that we use for the auction. On the trailer behind the block were 2 sheep feeders that Dad and I had made that we no longer use, so I was taking them to Wooster to sell in the consignment sale before the actual live animal auction. The sale w...
Monday, June 6 This morning I woke up and left to meet the FFA officer team at school so we could leave for our officer retreat.

We walked back to the cabin and had discussions about what we like and dislike about our off...

My family belongs to St. M...
