Lone Star Farm| Barbados Blackbelly sheep
Important News Flash
It is with a broken- heart that I make this announcement. After twenty-five years of raising these beautiful Barbados Blackbelly sheep, we have no choice but to close our doors.
I have been battling a bone infection in my foot since the first of July. I have had surgery on my foot six times. Sometimes morphine wasn't enough to kill the pain.
In the meantime, I have not been allowed to go to the barn as it is not advisable with an open wound on my foot. Since our hired help had quit, all the chores for sixty-five sheep have fallen on Mike (who has been working twelve-hours a day, six days a week, sometimes seven, for months), plus whatever family members could come from out-of-town to help. It has gotten to be more than we can handle. We will keep roughly a dozen ewes and several rams to have sheep to train the dogs, but the rest of the flock will be shipped tomorrow. It will be a sad day for us.
The sheep have been our world since we fell in love with the breed in 1996. We have accomplished so much with them, and they have been a delight to own and work with over the years. We have met so many wonderful people who shared our fascination with this breed. Many have become life-long friends. It has been an awesome adventure that we will have memories of for the rest of our lives. Thank you to all our customers that we have grown to love and include as part of our family. We wish you all good health and happiness the rest of your days.
