Farmer found calling from age 6
THE SHEEP MAN is having the last laugh.
Time was when Romario Greaves was the butt of jokes by schoolmates about his devotion to his animals.
Today, the 19-year-old holds his nickname dear and declares that some who jeered now want to be like the Sheep Man because of his early success in agriculture.
He said that because he used to be running up and down with sheep, a schoolmate who lives in his neighbourhood went to school and called him by that name which stuck.
Romario’s family is steeped in farming and he grew to love it as well. His grandfather Ezra was a pig farmer, while his father Bernard is a vegetable farmer.
At the age of six, Romario was given his first four sheep, and had as many as 50 at one time. (LK)
