Return Of The Kitchen Lambs

We had a big storm roll through last night, right around ba-ba time. The weather channel was calling for severe lightning and nickel size hail, so I just brought the boys back to the porch so I wouldn't have to worry that they were scared up at the barn. They might be getting big, but they're still babies.

Of course, with the lovely plastic gone, the rain really started blowing in, so we all had to move into the kitchen.



GL: "Did you really used to live in here?"

K: "Yeah, but everything was way taller."



GL: "Well, I'm going to sit over here where I can hear the tv."



K: "Mmm, okay, Graham. You do that."



Keebler stills dreams and talks in his sleep :-).

Those boys are sure cute! And they really have grown! Which is a good sign.

Did you make the large sheep under the counter?

No, they were a present from a friend. All the bottle lambs recognize them as sheep and try to play with them :-).

I can't get over how cute they are! I wish I could have a lamb; sigh; no room, not even for a little one.

Those boys are just so darling and you give them such tender loving care. Bless your heart. I'll be a life-long Punkin Patch fan.

You got some cute guys!! How old are they? You keep them inside the house? LoL! I forgot to whom I'm talking to! Thecrazysheeplady! LOL!
Great work buddy!

Keebs is about 7 weeks old and Graham is about 5 1/2 weeks. They are *mostly* living in the barn now, but when they are scared or if they get sick (or I miss them too much) they are always welcome back to the porch. The kitchen? Not so much ;-).

Oh so adorable! Love them both! What fun to have them in your kitchen. I want a kitchen lamb!!!

I never knew sheep had such personalities. It's good you protect them from the storm and let them back in the house for the night. I would do the same thing. I'm finding my silly icelandic wether sort of puppy like in his behavior and it cracks me up.

The picture of Keebler napping next to you is so endearing, I could look for hours and forget about the day's stress. The boys are still babies and I am so happy that they came in from last nights storm. It was scary even for adult humans.

If I wasn't at work I would be laughing hysterically at Graham laying on his cushy bed in your pristine kitchen...watching t.v. I love it! :-)

That is a riot. Auntie Mada got two lambs to bottle raise. She said very sternly they were meat animals and were not to be made into pets. Their names were Green Peas and Mint Sauce. I remember them playing tag up the servants' stairs that ran from the kitchen, where Auntie Mada was working, to the upstairs of the house. She was a softie, Auntie Mada was.

Has Keebler become golden, or is that the incandescent lighting or some such mischief?

Keebler's always been the golden boy ;-D

they sure are growing. Are baby sheep really as sensitive as you have us believe? I never even would have thought about them being scared of storms and such.

It's a good thing you don't spoil your sheep...


;-)


I wonder who is more calmed by the lambs in the kitchen during a storm ~ the sheep or the shepherdess???

I LOVE THESE PHOTOS! They sure seem comfortable in your house. Beautiful babies. Also, you did a great job with your cards.
