The Town Pound: A Halloween Tale of Colonial Militia and Stray Animal

"He’s Shaun the Sheep. He’s Shaun the Sheep. 

He even mucks about with those that cannot sleep.  

Maybe someday – you’ll find a way to 

Come and bleat with Shaun the Sheep.” 

Mark AllanTheme from Nick Parks’  clay-mation TV series. “Shaun the Sheep”

George, New England is fertile with history that makes for great stories. The town pound is new information to me. Stone structures are always a fascinating thing for me. They will stand the test of time and usually have much history behind what ever structure was built from the stones. Here in Nebraska stones are not really rare but not too plentiful. There are rock quarries in Nebraska but building structures and fences from rocks is not done because of the cost. Thanks for sharing your town pound story and have a great New England day.

Great story, George! I love the history, and using it in the way the modern day version of the 'Meredith Militia' did to raise money for charity is ingenious. Fun stuff...and the Halloween tie-in makes it more so.
