When I told Wyatt last week we were going to get new sheep that day,
his response was "how many?"
When I told him "4" he held up his finger and said sternly,
"No, one! JUST one!"
However, when we got to MaryAnne's -H&K Farm,
Wyatt seemed ok with us getting more than "JUST one"
(thank goodness, because we were getting these
and I didn't want to hear about it all the way home!)
This moorit ewe lamb (above and below) is Penny.
I think Penny likes to have her picture taken.
Below is our new gray moorit ewe lamb, Gin.
(short for Ginger of course)
This is Tipsy.
She is a mature black spotted ewe.
She was the first one sheared, for fear she might not readily go back in the barn real soon!
She might be a bit skeptical of us.
The last 2 photos here are of our new ram lamb.
Wyatt asked if he had a name and when I said "do you want to name him?"
he readily said "Let's name him Littlefoot" ?
(where in the world did he get that?)
(and Wyatts new nickname will be "boy who name sheep")
