Hello my name is Fred. I live in western Wisconsin on a hobby farm. Why do I go by the name PAH Shepherd? Well PAH stands for Prickly Ash Hill. Sixteen years ago when we bought this property where we live I wanted to give it a name. The hill was filled with the prickly ash trees. Anybody who has cleared a fence line will tell you the worst thing to clear is prickly ash. They will leave you scratched and bleeding after a long hard day.
The Shepherd refers to the small flock of sheep my wife and I raise. The sheep came into our family as a 4-H project my daughter did as a junior in high school. She has left home but the sheep stayed.
I enjoy farming, gardening and camping. I also enjoy photography and being my wife’s travel companion on her training trips and conferences.
This blog is a new adventure for me. I don’t do any writing but I am starting to find this as an outlet and a way for me share stories about myself. I hope you enjoy the blog.
