News and photos from our Miniature Horse and Tunis Sheep farm are published here as well as on our websites at www.unicornerfarm.com and www.tunis-sheep.com. We love our minis and we think you will too. We added some pretty red-headed sweeties to the farm...a flock of registered Tunis sheep. We also have a Quarter Horse mother and daughter and a draft "rescue" mare. Three curious llamas round out the big animals. And last but not least, two inside cats and two outside!

Next stop... Illinois...add 5 more
After getting the truck we went by the fairgrounds, empty now of all but our lonely sheep trailer. Hitched up and headed to Darling Farm near Zanesfield to pick up our first four Tunis. What a gorgeous farm, beautiful grounds, a lake, nice barns and house and fabulous Tunis! Wish we could have enjoyed the Dunham's hospitality longer but we loaded the sheep and headed for Illinois to pickup some more.
We made arrangements with Kevin Schultz to meet in Champaign so we could hit the interstate south. We transfered five new ewes into the trailer on a Lowe's parking lot about 9 p.m. I think that our new ram thought he was in heaven. ;-)
Bob wanted to continue driving as long as he could. So we made it as far as St. Louis that night. Watered the sheep and said good night and got a quick night's sleep at the Red Roof Inn. Up early so we could keep moving and keep the sheep cool. We had one more stop planned... Independence, Kansas.
