A Poem about Billy the Sheep
The Procters had a farm of sheep
Come Spring them people had little sleep.
Lambs kept arriving day and night
And boy did some put up quite a fight.
One or two became special to us
Including Billy whose lambs caused quite a fuss (when feeding)
Dan produced a set of dvd,
From footage from a webcam for us all to see.
On 6th of May it was announced to one and all
That the day before Billy had given out the call
At last her babies had been born
The Proctors would have no further need to yawn.
The lambs were a little girl and a boy
I bet Billy was thinking "Oh what Joy"
Unfortunately things didn't go to plan
Billy didn't like her girl but she loved her little man
Lynda stepped in as a surrogate mam
And helped to feed those little lambs
Today sad news did come
Which made us all feel very numb.
Lynda informed us that Billy had died
And yes its true most of us cried.
Only a few days ago Dan told us she would be their pet
Now she has gone and she will always be remembered
As the best sheep you could have ever met.

Alex from Coquitlam sent us this very sweet picture - thank you so much for this - it brought a big smile to my face and I am sure it will make Howard and Lynda feel a lot better when they see it :)
