I missed getting Difficult Boy's fleece this year.  I'll try again next year.  Difficult Boy is a 4-year old wether, who, like Difficult Girl, is far from being a pet--more of a pest.  He hangs out with Difficult Girl at the back of the flock, looking haughty, and also takes delight in facing down the dogs.  The French alpine shepherds refer to all of the sheep with this kind of personality as the "difficult ones".  He is doing his best to qualify!   Now that I've added him to the named sheep list, I'll make sure I get some additional photos and videos so you can see what I'm talking about!  His fleece weight this year is 3.8 kg/8.4 pd.
