Just looked up what Faldage means:

Fald´age
n.1.(O. Eng. Law) A privilege of setting up, and moving about, folds for sheep, in any fields within manors, in order to manure them;
- often reserved to himself by the lord of the manor.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, published 1913 by C. & G. Merriam Co.

Maybe LukeJavan8 and you are related?

Nope!
My sheep comes from "The Little Prince'
by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
The prince asks the pilot to draw him a sheep.
It is a short French novel I used in teaching
2nd year French decades ago.
My beautiful avatar is the work of
Tromboniator on this very same Awad site.
(you'll notice the lines of the sheep spell Luke)

Very creative Tromboniator, now the avatar makes sense with your signature Luke.
