The NW Shetland Sheep Group is pulling together and holding an online benefit auction for the Black Sheep Creamery, one of the family businesses devastated by the flooding in Lewis County, Washington. The above bits and pieces are all sorted out and shown on the Auction Site along with many other donated items:
Can you imagine losing 80% of your flock friends, and not being able to do anything about it because you're saving your selves and children? Can you imagine pulling semi-conscious ewes out of a pile of dead sheep and praying that they make it? (One of them did!) Can you imagine mud, mud, mud everywhere, in everything, covering everything, stuck to everything? It will be a long, expensive and hard road for the Gregorys and many of their neighbors.
We all have things to be thankful for, and especially that we can help others in times like this. If you can help either with donations, or by bidding, please do! Feel free to pass the word, spread the link around and encourage bidding. :-)
