Elf is a really special “pet” sheep, a 3-year old who had crippling arthritis as a lamb. I did lots and lots of work to reduce the fluid build-up in his front leg joints and to allow him to be able to walk properly, including several Bowen therapy sessions with Ingrid Layton, who does Bowen for my dogs. Though Elf would never take a bottle from me, he now comes up to me any time we are shepherding, and has a snuggle. Only I would notice that he has a very slight limp. He has an unusual face and a sweet temperament like Clara, his foster sister. Because of his physical challenges early in life he is not as big as other boys his age, but his fleece is lovely–fine and soft. Elf’s fleece weight this year is 2.5 kg/5.5 pd.
