| So Let's Get Started- How Does One Sponsor A Sheep?!
*Sit down in your favorite cozy chair, with a BIG cup of coffee and set sail on a reading cruise through the sheep's website biographies. You are welcome to sponsor any of the sheep, horses, dogs or llamas. More than one if you would like to. If the sheep is already sponsored it will be indicated next to the sheep’s name on their website bio.
*Sponsorship fees are due the first of each month. You may choose a sheep to sponsor any time. Your sponsorship will start immediately! You are also welcome to sponsor a sheep as a gift for a friend. Maybe a friend who doesn't knit, crochet or spin yarn? The sheep think that would be a very special gift for a friend or family member!
*Your kindness will help us cover the cost ofkeeping your sheep healthy and comfy for one month. A sheep needs things including hay, grain, minerals, treats and occasional veterinary care,. In the spring they also need shearing, worming and vaccinations.
*In return you will have exclusive access to your sheep’s private scrapbook. You’ll find even more photos, detailed information about their rapscallion antics and activities on the farm. The sheep will be updating their scrapbooks often. The extra photos and scrapbook are only accessible by you via your own secret link.
*Here is an example of a sheep's scrapbook. My Mom is sponsoring Trillium- Click here to see Trillium's Scrapbook!
*The sheep will also send out occasional surprises to thank you. They love surprises and hope you do too!
(Careful what you wish for everyone- the sheep can be a little naughty- might be a box of Fruit Loops!)
*At shearing time (April) sponsors have the option to choose between:
*1 pound of washed or unwashed wool from their sheep- OR-
*4 ounce skein of yarn, spun by me to your favorite weight from your sheep's fleece- OR-
*Choice of fingerless wrist warmers, scarf or hat- with yarn handspun from your sheep & knit by Nancy or Barbara- or maybe even Me!
*(To receive one of the above choices, sponsorship must have been for previous 6 months, or paid ahead 6 months- sponsorships may start any time of the year!)*
*Per month- $10
* 6 months in advance- $50 (1 month free)
*12 months in advance - $100 (2 months free)
(Payments may be made by check or Paypal)
*We are working on a way for you to pay for subscriptions via the shopping cart but that is a few days away yet. For now, just email us at email@example.com . Please include the name of the sheep you would like to sponsor and the fee option that works for you. Then we'll get to adding you to our flock. Hope we can welcome you soon!
*There are sheep we will not offer for sponsorship. About 2/3 of our sheep are over 10 years old now, most closing in on or over 15. Several have special needs or have not been feeling well. Please remember things happen that are beyond our control. If your sheep passes away, we will contact you first and we’ll have a good cry. Afterwards you can decide if you would like to choose a different sheep to sponsor. It’s sad when we lose one of our friends but I have remember they'll always be in my heart AND my angels until we meet again. Sigh...
