31. Landon Learns to Make a Buck

Landon Joins 4H Sheep Project

When we sold our house down in Hayward we moved to Fairview Avenue up on the hill above California State University. We had 2 acres of land and there was a fire danger if you allowed weeds and grass to grow unchecked. We bought three ewes to keep the grass mowed down to a reasonable level. Our neighbor up the hill from us had a ram. Well he saw those beautiful young ladies chomping on the grass and he got ideas. There was a wire fence between him and the ladies. Well that was no problem for a determined ram and he would back off from the fence about 20 yards and then lowered his head a run full tilt to the fence. He battered that fence until it began to lean something terrible. He kept at it day after day. Eventually after the fence was tilted enough, he was catapulted into the air and over the fence into the midst of the three young ladies. All four of them took little time getting acquainted. After lambs were born the boys got into a 4H sheep project.
