I took advantage this past lovely warm and dry weekend to spend some quality time with the sheep.
Some of them were quite eager to get some chest scritches.
Fancy was the first one there. I can always depend on her for some sheep hugging.
I Love Her. We Understand Each Other.
Then Snowball shows up. He is one of those silly southdown babydoll sheep.
I find him hard to give scritches to because he has so much dense wool. Hard to find those bare spots. It is almost time to trim the wool away from his eyes. AND change sheep suits.
He is beginning to look like a stuffed sausage.
Elle came next. She is going to be one of B.o.B.'s girls.
She has a sweetly bossy personality. When she wants pats, she walks up and pushes her face on mine or will paw at me until I give her attention. If I am sitting down, she will walk onto my lap and stand on those sharp little hooves with her face pushed into my cheek or shoulder until she gets her chest scritches.
Slightly more stand-offish is her daughter Gaia, who is also going to be a B.o.B. girl.
Isn't she cute? Her cuteness is misleading...she is the girl in charge out there; the lead sheep.
Deja is also going to be a B.o.B. girl. She has a BIG fleece. Soft too. I like the way she looks.
The last and final B.o.B. girl is Zanibar. She, typically, wouldn't come anywhere near me. I'll sneak up on her to get an updated photo. They all need their suits changed or adjusted so there will be an opportunity!
