I want a sheep! And now, he could get me one (at least for a year). All through our trip to England in 2003, we saw sheep in the countryside, and I kept asking my parents for one. In high school, my friend Liz loved sheep (but she didn't knit or spin or anything) and really wanted to have one and enter it into the Hennepin County Fair. Now, we could have sheep without having to take care of them.
I wonder if they will let you buy the adoption for a special event, but then pick out the sheep when its adoption time (whenever that is).
Hmmm... must investigate further and enlist my mother.
