No one told Benji this lamb was fragile. No one told Benji that this lamb needed help. Benji didn't have to have anyone coax him, and no one even guessed that he would take on this lamb and all others who needed help as his own personal charge and duty. No one told Benji that the loneliness alone can swallow up a lamb and the spark of life left in this dear little wooly creature. Benji simply did and was. He knew that the lamb needed him more than that wet cloth to help stimulate his bodily functions. Benji knew when those were done to stop and rest and bring a mammalian companionship that humans couldn't quite touch even though we try. Benji is gentle, kind, searching of the soul and looking for ways to help. His eyes exude strength and kindness. Even to my lambs. This lamb needed and Benji knew. Benji gives without reservation or discrimination. Still, Benji lays by our lamb.

This blog chronicles our very full life here on WoodSong Farm. We will share everything from dog to sheep stories, unique wooly works, to animal husbandry tips we pick up along the way. I hope this helps to give you an idea of what our extended farm family and wooly projects are like, and that we may somehow benefit everyone who reads about our journey.
