So, this is what happens when the door is left open. Lleila still thinks I'm her mum....and even has the audacity to start chewing on a model sheep!

She's the tiny little lamb in my avatar (+ 9 months) who weighed in at under one pound. She's been absolutely trouble-free apart from needing bottle feeding (her twin brother was a 12lb plus whopper), never having a day's illness, and is an absolute delight.

From me and my flock of thoroughly spoilt sheep.....have a happy and healthy Xmas and New Year (just recovering from bowel surgery myself..... have to be fit for March lambing!)

Merry Christmas to you and yours, too - it's amazing how well Lleila has done! Hope you recover fast, too, and enjoy the holidays.

I hope you recover quickly and easily! Merry Christmas :)
Do you mind if I ask what breed of sheep she is?
Aside from the Jacob ewes we raise over here and the Suffolk/Hamps I raised last year, I'm quite ignorant of the different sheep breeds that exist out there.

Lleila is a mule (Beulah Speckled Face mum and Blue Faced Leicester father)

Here's a pic of a Beulah ewe and a Leicester ewe (battling the disgusting weather we are having right now).

Thanks for sharing. what a great picture! Merry Christmas to you over there across the pond. Glad your surgery went well and you'll be ready for spring lambing. Finish healing!

Haha! I showed this to my daughter and she was very concerned about the well being of your stocking. I assured her the sheep (probably) didn't eat it and she thought it was cute.

Merry Christmas! And heal quickly!
