Mary Hood is a lifetime resident in the rolling hills of Central Texas.She has always had a great love of animals of all kinds.Being the wife of farmer and rancher, Charles Hood, she has had the opportunity to care for all kinds of livestock. On their ranch they keep a running herd of 250 to 300 Dorper-cross sheep that Mary plays a fulltime part in feeding, doc- toring, and caring for. Every spring and fall lamb- ing season she usually ends up with a small group of bottle babies to feed. Naturally, they become very special to her. In all the daily feedings and handling of the sheep, certain happenings and events give Mary ideas that would make an interesting picture. Having a little spare time while traveling with her husband, Mary began sketching little scenes that she had observed while watching the sheep. In making the sketches, she tried to convey some of the thoughts that might be in the mind of a sheep instead of our human view. These sketches have been formed into this book in the hope that other people who love sheep can enjoy some of the funny, heart warming , and daily events that happen in the life of a sheep.
