Meet Jolly, the smiling Romney lamb. He lives at the Homestead Wool & Gift Farm in Monroe, WI. It’s a great place to be if you are a sheep. Jolly and his friends get to scamper in the pastures and eat hay and Froot Loops to their hearts’ content without having to worry about being eaten or sold off. I have always been an animal lover, and it means a lot to me that they treat their animals like members of the family.

The Coats for Sheep fundraiser is a really great cause if you’ve got a few dollars to spend. $20 buys a coat for a Homestead sheep, ensuring a nice, clean fleece. For $25, they’ll ship the coat to you and let you decorate it first, and for $50 you get photos of your sheepie wearing his coat and a pound of wool when he’s sheared. Even though Jolly is mine all mine, there are lots of other wonderful flock members who need sponsoring. Click here to donate online.

p.s. Doesn’t he remind you of this cat?
