An Important Flock Giveaway Announcement!

by Susan on January 14, 2011

I’ve been getting lots of feedback on our Flock Giveaway and doing a lot of thinking. So many people have commented or emailed me that they really want to enter our giveaway but don’t have the technology skills to make and upload a video. I feel like such a jerk for just assuming that anyone could do this, because the ability to post a video on YouTube has exactly nothing to do with whether or not you’d make a good shepherd, you know?

So, in the interest of fairness, I’m changing things up a little bit. Entries can be in the form of a short video or a written essay. Essays should be short, no more than a few paragraphs, telling me why you’d like to win a flock of sheep and a little bit about your farm. Pictures are encouraged! Because I know that writing these things can be daunting, I’m extending the deadline for all entries to Sunday, January 23, 2011.

So sharpen your pencils and get to writing! And GOOD LUCK!

THANK YOU! I was embarrassed to admit that I didn’t have the tech skills to do this. But I do think I can care for some farm animals!!

WAH!!! My friend told me about the giveaway but because I didn’t have the technology to enter I put it out of my head…just happened to stop by to check who the lucky person was who won and found out I didn’t need the technology but am past the deadline. Boo-hoo!!!! You did inspire me to consider doing the same thing with my angora rabbits though…really appreciate your pay-it-forward thinking!!!

My daughter, Spinning Spinderella, Leslie Cooper, was so hyped about this contest that she bought a program, taught herself how to make a video, enlisted everyone in the family to take pics and made a terrific video. So proud of her. Hope she wins, but also hope everyone gets to see her video.
