Hey! The ewe finally gets a name!

I know its been awhile since I asked for help naming Ada's baby. I had to "try on" every name suggestion though, and that took awhile! There were some great names, and in the end the sheep named herself...but she did end up with a middle name that one of you suggested.

Introducing.....


Ellerby Faye

Why Ellerby?? I have no idea. I was out in the sheep pasture drinking a beer (I know...it sounds weird) and trying on different names for her..and all of a sudden I said "Ellerby" ( I have no idea WHERE it came from)..and her little head popped up and she took a step toward me and it just stuck. Every one of my animals has to have a middle name..why? I have no idea. Faye, which was submitted by Anne-Marie, just fit. Her personality is very Faye, or faerie like...she pronks around the pasture like a squirrel on crack and is constantly messing with the other lambs.

So there you go, thank you for all of your submissions..I loved trying on the names and there is still one ewe due to lamb sometime this month...so who knows, maybe there will be a Masala or Vermin or Booger amongst them! :) I'll keep you updated.

Ellerby Faye is a very pretty name for a very pretty ewe, but I do like Masala better. ;D

BTW, everybody drinks beer while watching their farm animals roam.

I like it! I think it's kind of sweet that you give all of your animals middle names. I don't think I would have thought of that (though we do name our vehicles. Is that weird??)

And I have to argue with Teresa. No, we don't ALL drink beer while watching our animals. Some of us prefer tequila, thank-you-very-much! ;D

Both of you are wrong... some of don't have animals to watch, so we drink to forget. LOL
