3 years ago I sold a ram lamb (through a craigslist ad) to Kat, who lives about 4 hours away. Through that sale, I friend-ed her on facebook and met another "sheep" person, Sue, who raises and sells Suffolks.
Today, Steve and I drove 4 hours to pick up a new ewe lamb for Lyndsey's breeding flock, Farm Pink. Along with obtaining a beautiful young lamb, I got to meet Sue (from Peterson Show Lambs) and her daughter. Kat had also driven a short distance to say hello.
