The Faroe Islands, located in the middle of the North Atlantic, home to 49.188 people and approximately 70.000 sheep. As from today, I'm the proud owner of one of these sheep. Auburn fur, smart facial expression. I named it Sally Brown, referring to Peanuts and the motto „Happiness Is a Warm Blanket“. Sally's shock-headed woolen coat will keep her warm all through the moody Faroese winter.
What a unique birthday present! Thank you ever so much, Malan Jógvansdóttir and Eivind S. Thomsen. You’ve taught me so much about my second home, about life on the Faroe Islands, sheep farming included. You are not only neighborly people. You are dear friends.
Sally Brown will spend her life on the island Eysturoy, close to Funningsbotn. The walk from our village Elduvík through the valley to Funningsfjørður is one of my favorites. Grassland surrounded by mountains, a creek, two waterfalls and a remote mountain lake. Gorgeous, and, from now on, Sally Brown Land. Takk fyri.
