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, Malan Jógvansdóttir and Eivind S. Thomsen. You’ve taught me so much about my second home, 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. Grassland surrounded by mountains, a creek and two waterfalls. Gorgeous, and, from now on, Sally Brown Land.
On my way from Elduvík to Funningsfjørður. Above: My dear friend Malan Jógvansdóttir, together with my birthday present, the lamb I named Sally Brown. Sally's view: Funningsfjørður seen from the mountainside.
