When I was about thirteen years old, I entered an essay contest that was being held by a local T.V. station. I was one of the winners! I got two American blackbelly lambs; a male and a female! I named the male Jem and the female Jewel. But about the beginning of autumn, the ram started to get mean, so I sold Gem and Jewel to a lady who already had sheep. About two years ago, the lady that I sold Gem and Jewel to let my Dad have a free female lamb that is the daughter of the ram I sold! My Dad brought the lamb home as a surprise. Jade, the lamb my Dad brought home, loves cheese puffs. If I feed her some she seems to follow me around for awhile. But Jade some times follows me even if I have no cheese puffs. Now she is a special pet!
