Considered perhaps the finest artist Montana has produced since Charlie Russell, sheepman Bill Stockton was also the celebrated author of this classic illustrated memoir―a wise, humorous, and sometimes shocking glimpse into what he termed “the problems of being a sheep and a few of the problems of people who care for them.” But, as one critic wrote, “This book will do more than amuse you or give you moments of enjoyment or teach you about sheep. It will teach you something about yourself.”

This new edition features a beautiful new design incorporating Stockton's illustrations―including a new cover reflecting the book's Montana ranch landscape. This book is for all Western art aficionados, residents, and visitors to Montana.

From the Back Cover:

A beloved Montana artist’s classic and beautifully illustrated memoir of life as a sheep rancher

From the foreword

Ostensibly a glimpse into the lives and personalities of the sheep Bill Stockton raised on his central Montana ranch, Today I Baled Some Hay to Feed the Sheep the Coyotes Eat offers an astonishing portrait of both the four-legged creatures of the field and the artist-sheepman himself. First published in 1983 and based on Stockton’s sketches and observations as a sheep rancher, the insights contained within these pages reveal a tender heart for his sheep and for the landscape where he raised them. But, as the title suggests, this notebook of sketches and thoughts alone reveals much about the wry sense of humor and acute awareness of the ironies of life possessed by its creator and developed over more than eight decades of life in the Western countryside.

From the Inside Flap:

Sheepman Bill Stockton is considered perhaps the finest artist Montana has produced since Charlie Russell, and he is also the celebrated author of this classic illustrated memoir—a wise, humorous, and sometimes shocking glimpse into what he termed “the problems of being a sheep and a few of the problems of people who care for them.” But “this book will do more than amuse you or give you moments of enjoyment or teach you about sheep,” observed Sue Mathews of Eastern Montana College in Billings, in her foreword to the original 1983 edition. “It will teach you something about yourself.”

This new edition, which features Stockton’s beautiful illustrations, is a must for all Western art aficionados, as well as residents of and visitors to Montana.
