saint freckles

Hi Carol,

Freckles died peacefully, and naturally, today at the venerable age of 20. I found her in the barn lying on her side, looking as if she had simply collapsed or died in her sleep. It didn’t come as a surprise, as she had some rough times this winter, and she was really looking her age — losing muscle tone, her fleece this year was thinner and shorter, and in the last week, she sometimes looked as if she might have dementia, standing in the field not knowing where she was or how to get back to the barn.

And, strange as it may seem, she died exactly 6 years to the day that I adopted her: Mother’s Day 2005.

in peace freckles…there is just annie left of the original saints 5 little sheep.

    How strange is this…today when I was out by the loafing shed I was looking at Annie ( she has the most endearing eyes you can image ) and was thinking exactly those words & tried to remember the names of those that left

    Mary, freckles Baby Jack..Annie… who am I missing ?

    Sweet grass awaits you condolences to her family

    What a lucky Freckles to have spent the last 6 years loved and well cared for. If and when I go I want to go like Freckles did. Naturally and with dignity.

    My condolences for your loss. I am sure she will be missed.
