Contest: Name the Sheep at Lower Dover Belize Jungle Lodge

One of our first stories was about our failings as sheep farmers in the jungle.

It seems as if lady luck has finally joined our side here at Lower Dover Jungle Lodge and the sheep are taking nicely to their new pen. The baby ewe is almost fully grown now, although it still does not have a name. Perhaps some help naming her from our followers?

We also picked up 3 new sheep, one being a young ram that is also nameless. In fact, all our sheep have no names except B.B. the oldest ewe. From my limited experience living on a farm, it is much harder to eat animals that you name, and being more vegetarian in 2012 was one of our resolutions. Therefore, Lower Dover Jungle Lodge is having an official naming contest for our four new sheep in hopes of them surviving to see the party on December 21, 2012 in Belize.

•    2 First prize winners: 1 for ram’s name, 1 for ewe’s name
•    Second prize: most original name
•    Third prize: female name
•    Runner-up: best remaining name

the Baby, two females, and the ram.

Each first prize winner will receive 3 free nights stay at Lower Dover Jungle Lodge in the Aqua, Red, or Newlywed Suite for winner and a guest anytime before November 1, 2012 space permitting. They will also get their pictures taken as “God parents” with the sheep during their stay in Belize. Food, drink, and tours not included.

Second prize winner will get the brand new Lower Dover Field Station & Jungle Lodge 2012 T-shirt with a map of the on site Maya ruins recently identified as “Lower Dover” printed on the back.

Third prize gets a case of Belikin beer or a bottle of Belize rum on us upon checking in for their stay in Western Belize’s best hotel to experience real Belize living, in the jungle, surrounded by wildlife.

Runner up gets the piece of mind knowing he or she helped save a sheep’s life by doing their one kind deed of the day and posting a comment on our blog!

In order to win…

  • Entries must be received no later than February 21, either by posting a comment with 1 Male or Female name to either our Facebook fan page or our blog below.
  • Only one name per sex can be posted to the blog or the Facebook page. One of each can be posted at both locations for the maximum amount of entries (2).
  • To qualify, all winners must either be a Facebook fan, or follow our blog at the time of the drawing, through the period of travel, bonus points for those who do both.

I'm a ram, but some people think I'm a goat, even though I'm marked like a cow!

We will post the winners of the contest on our blog February 22. Happy naming and commenting, good luck! Feel free to share this contest with your friends! And thanks for the help!

  1. Not sure where to leave my entry for the female sheep name, so I left it in both places (Facebook and here): Female Name: Lady BaaBaa
