  • Since I’m in my senior years, I don’t expect that I will ever have sheep and lambs. But I enjoy the glimpses you give us of your wonderful Croft and the insights you share of the hardship and joys. Thank you!

  • I so enjoy watching your videos. Your lambs are absolutely adorable (as are all lambs in my opinion!) but the colours make your lambs especially special. Thank you for sharing your life and experiences with us all. I am looking forward to the next video,’
