Family Circus

Spring is truly here and the green is so green and lush that some of our sheep are starting to look like walruses. Seriously. Not healthy. Starting yesterday I've been limiting them to two hours of free grazing in the morning and two hours grazing in the evening (someone needs to do this to me!). They are not happy about this and here's what we have to show for it this afternoon.



Who did this?




"Not me." (Remember that ghost from the Family Circus cartoon?)



"I'd never break a door (and part of a wall) down."



Your pretty much daily dose of Keebler cuteness ;-).

Keebler is just the cutest sheep I have ever seen!! I have even told my students about him. They thought his name was terrific!
He makes me smile! Thank you.

I guess they showed you who is boss of the barn! First they were sheared and endured freezing cold weather, and now they are told they are too fat. You are not going to be a very popular sheep lady this week. If I were you, I would stay inside and paint that spinning wheel. It's safer there. I don't know how you get anything done. It must be hard to take your eyes off of that adorable lamb.

I come here to get my Keebler fix.

I'm a big grazer too!

Just catching up on some of your blogs that I've missed. Keebler is a heart-stealer for sure! What a cute little lamb. I loved your bee photographs, and also your spinning demo. The barn damage is quite alarming. I'll have to make sure my flock doesn't get word of this idea! Kisses to Keebler!

Oh my! The barn damage is not a good thing. I had a couple of boys that discovered tearing down the barn was great fun. Each year, they'd teach the new ram lambs to do the same thing. I finally had to sell off all of my rams when I put up a new barn! Of course, just to be safe, I did put a 3 foot high concrete base around the entire new barn...

Keebler, on the other hand, I'm quite sure would NEVER do such a thing....

Keebler is so heart tugging cute, and it sounds like you are enjoying every minute of his lambhood. The name does fit him perfectly. My girls haven't even gotten turned out on the new grass (hoping this weekend!), and they already look like walruses...

The cows will do this naughty thing when they think they have been trapped too long. Bad cows, er...sheep! Bad.

I love that the bangs were left. Nice haircuts.
Ah, breaking out and going for freedom! Nothing like focus to get where you would like to be.

Keebler is sooooooo cute. I could get a lamb and keep it in my condo couldn't I? couldn't I?

I hope Keebler remains a regular on your blog. He's just about the cutest little guy I've seen in a LONG time. Good thing he's not mine. I wouldn't get a single thing done until he grew up and lost that baby cuteness. But who knows!? He might always have that cutie face!
