These beautiful Katahdin sheep are raised on a local farm not far away.  I had the opportunity to visit and take some photos of them as well as the Belted Galloway cattle raised there recently.

Lessons From the Farm

What I learned growing up on the farm was a way of life that was centered on hard work, and on faith and on thrift.  Those values have stuck with me my whole life.

~Rick Perry

I can certainly relate to this having grown up on a dairy farm in Iowa and now having my own small hobby farm in Tennessee.
