FtV – Christmas Witch Sheep of Narragansett
Welcome to New England Legends From the Vault – FtV Episode 35 – In Episode 214, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger spend Christmas on a Narragansett, Rhode Island, sheep farm searching for a unique breed of sheep that takes its name from a spell cast by a local witch after the brutal Christmas blizzard of 1811 hit Benny Nichols’s flock. Against all odds, a young Ancon sheep survived the storm, but the ewe’s strange winter coat drew the attention of local witch Tuggie Bannocks. This episode first aired December 23, 2021.
