Welcome to Sheep Week

Hey everyone.  It’s Sheep Week. (If you don’t follow Modern Farmer, you should. Their info about gardening and backyard animals (eggs!) is invaluable.)

If only a president — any “modern-era” president — had the guts to put sheep or goats on the White House lawn to mow and fertilize the grass; to make a statement contrary to every dang thing being powered by oil and gas and/or chemicals, it would be so cool.

President Wilson's Sheep at White House

During World War I, Woodrow and Edith Wilson kept a flock of sheep on the White House grounds to save costs to cut the grass. The wool was also auctioned off to raise money for the Red Cross. (Via: http://siarchives.si.edu)
