Stacy’s Funny Farm is kind of accepting visitors! Dobby is no longer with us, of course, and Charlie has moved on, but Charlotte is in training! Wee Charlotte is a baby Shetland Sheep, like her Uncle Hamish. She also seems to be part kangaroo, so we will adjust the fencing before we turn her loose. She’s smart and curious and funny but we want her to be that way inside the fences, not down the street.
The front yard is open, Hamish comes out with me most days, but visitors must stay on the street side of the fence. We don’t advertise our address, making it even more challenging. Sanctuaries tend to attract gift boxes of kittens, and you may have noticed the cameras and threatening signs at your local shelter. We can’t do that here, so we keep our location private. We have become a popular destination for local families. Sheep visiting hours are posted on the Little Free Library. We plan to post News for the Neighborhood on this website to update the neighbors about our behind the scenes activities.
Bird Flu: Bird flu has been found at Green Lake and a couple of backyard flocks in Bothell, so we are surrounded. The Funny Farm Flock is following the rules and staying cooped up. We are not offering fresh eggs or fertilizer at this time. Washington State Department of Agriculture has current information here.
If you are in the 98155 zipcode area and are interested in a visit, please fill out the form and I’ll let you know where we are and verify that we are available. “Summer” hours are roughly 4:00-6:00 at this writing.
See you soon!
