Elaine Bristol works for the Michigan Ag Council during the day, but at night she transforms into a shepherd! Elaine, a fifth generation Michigan State Spartan, raises sheep with her family. Listen as she tells about how she ignored her instincts on a flight, the joy on people’s faces at Disney World, the beauty of a dead end sign and how many wool items of clothing she sports daily. She covers:

  • Providing a tasty salad bar for her herd
  • The amazing utility of a shepherd’s crook
  • How grafting works with animals, not just plants
  • Her upcoming wedding
  • Becoming a chronic volunteer at the local fair
  • Fitting into a millennial stereotype
  • Finding love in ‘plane’ sight
  • Living where others only vacation
  • Beauty on land and in the sky, including eagles
  • Why cheese and bread are the best foods
  • Taking care of her grandma, who had Alzheimer’s disease
