Sheepish Grin

August 27, 2012

A quick nail trimming before being released to the Weed Patch pasture.

 

Three Shetland rams have been added to our collection of snouts, beaks and stingers. They are working with us until the early spring, at which point their owners will move them to greener pastures. The boys are curious little buggers and snuck into the Yolkswagon when the door was left open. The chickens were not amused and did not hesitate to alert us to the mammoth fuzzy intruders. I’ve named the light one Merino and the twin boys Rambo and Ramekin. I couldn’t handle the in-house suggestions of Smokey, Coco and Lambchop, so I’m exerting some creative liberties. I think we’re in for some sheep-scapades this fall with this ram-bunctious trio. Stay tuned…

  1. Thanks TQ! No shearing until spring for these boys – they need their new coats to keep warm their first winter.Will keep you posted!

    What a good looking bunch! They look mighty fluffy too. If you do shear them I’m interested in the wool. As I understand it goats get Spring and Fall haircuts, is that the same for sheep too? Now all you need is Babe (the sheep herding pig) and you’re all set. LOL. All kidding aside, I love what you are doing…keep up the good work!

We'd love to hear from you:
