  1. Oh I’m so sorry to hear this. My grandad kept sheep when I was younger and we had a tame sheep (who we rather originally named Larry) and I remember how sad it was when she died. Pets are family and they do leave such a void when they go. #whatevertheweather

  2. Aw, what a sad tale. Our animals are all special and their lives are important, I don’t care what anyone says. Recent research has found that grief for a lost pet can be as profound, even more so in fact, than for another human, and that there is nothing wrong with that, it is a sign of our humanity. I hope your lovely memories – and photos – of Minty will be some comfort at this difficult time. #AnimalTales

  3. Of course he was important even if he was only a sheep.If an animal touches your heart of course you will be upset to see him go- it’s perfectly reasonable. I guess it might not be the done thing for a farmer’s wife to get attached to an animal like that, but you are only human. x

  4. There is no such thing as ‘only’ when it comes to pets.. They are part of the family and that is that. I am sorry abou Minty, he looked like a lovely and very special sheep.

  5. Animals can bring such joy but leave such a hole when they pass. So sorry for your loss honey but minty will be happily munching in the sky now xxxx
