The sheep section seems slim to start so I thought I'd share a picture of our first lamb of the year to give you all an excuse to post some pretty pictures of your sheep.

This is "Kissin Kouzin" one of our Jacob ewes and her ram lamb "Perseus"

Just BEAUTIFULL!!
This is my first year with sheep. I was lucky to get Shetlands. 2 Ewes and a young Ram. ( 9 weeks old) The Ewes are a year old..I think. Anyways...meet the crew....
This is April...she is Sooo sweet..and always wanting to get a good scratch under the chin...



This is Nelly. SHe too is always wanting a good scratch...I could sit with them for hours..and they always want more...


Our newest little one...Sonny Boy.
He was 9 weeks old when I brought him home, and still on the bottle. He gets pellets, pasture, and a few bottles a day still...


I am totally in love with my little flock..and hopeing they will breed this fall....and give us beautifull babies!

Thanks....I really love them. They are docile..and very friendly. Almost to a fault! When I come out the front door, they run to the fence and bawl...wanting me to come scratch them. Yup, they are spoiled...I ALWAYS make my way to the fence...or sit with them in the paddock. Still trying to get the boy used to me...he is very skittish, even with bottle feeding, I have to catch him. However, once I get him, he grabs onto the bottle like he is starving. His round tummy proves that wrong! LOL

Freckles is beautifull!!! Is she a Shetland?
We got another little Shetland Ewe. She is just about 3 months old..and very tiny. She was rejected from her mother, and hand raised. Thier vet said she would never make it.....so here is Mary..the tiny lamb.

The lady I got her from is the one I got all the others from as well...she told Mary she was going to the farm of misfits! LOL
Here is a pic for size comparison...she is tiny.

I think she will be BEAUTIFULL when she grows.
unfortunately, being hand raised...and never being around other sheep...she thinks she is part human, and TERRIFIED of the other sheep.
