Sheepish


Treat time for sheep. They just love dried beet pulp. (Go figure...)


You may remember that I told you that Tyr had been bottle-raised. Well, he does follow me around like Mary's Little Lamb. I couldn't get far enough away from him to get a better angle--and yes, that's my knee in the bottom of the photo. (He's convinced I must have more treats in my pockets.)


Thorn carries himself like he's a 500-hundred pound ram, not a 100-pound fellow who's recently been neutered. Obviously, he fancies himself very grand and very handsome.

My daughters had lambs as pets when we were on the farm. Of course, they grew into sheep, didn't they and someone left the yard gate open. Consequently I had sheep in the kitchen and under the table.

Thorn and Tyr are beautiful boys! I can't wait to see what you do with their wool when shearing time comes :)

Tyr esp. sounds like a sweetheart (makes me miss my Sallycat more, oddly...)

It's raining cats and dogs as usual and so I do a little walk through blogville and of course here to look at the animals ! And what do I see : The blogging chicks ! It's a pitty I didn't see it before, otherwise I would have stolen again and put a chicken picture as entry ! Your sheep is really cute, you are so lucky to live with so many animals, even if I am sure, it's a lot of work too !

awwwww! I always imagined sheep were hairy-er. I guess that's what you get living in suburbia. I know absolutely nothing about animals.

Beet pulp??

oh yeah--apparently it's the part that's left over after they process beets for, i dunno, canning or making sugar or whatever. it looks kind of like a cross between All-Bran and shredded wheat. yummy! =)
