Maude is the old girl, my oldest sheep. She's a purebred Border Leicester and knows it. She was one of the original three sheep I ever got (a trade for fiddle lessons). She came with Salvator and Marvin, both of them were half Romney and I don't think Maude ever let them forget it. Now Maude is in her ninth year and while she has never birthed a lamb she still sticks around. Partially because she produced wool and partially because I worry she may do me in with some quick shiv work if I dared try to eat her. Don't let that placid smile fool you. She's a tiger.
