congrats on the award! I hope it brings good publicity to your book!

I am a bit confused on the “don’t want to hurt sheep” routine…is it preferable to let them die from overheating when they aren’t shorn?! I’m one of those annoying people who helps at shearings, etc. so I find this viewpoint somewhat confounding…but the award is good in any event!
