Pretty Sheep

20 got to visit a real sheep farm.



He'd heard stories about Nistock Farms and is pretty partial to Marcel (everyone is ;-) and couldn't wait to see all the fancy sheep.



"Look at all the different colors!"




"Why are you wearing a sweater?"




"Can I come live at your farm? I heard your sheep never have to go out in the rain. We don't care if it's a warm rain and our fleeces are all dirty. Only Sheepmom cares about stuff like that. We like to lay around and be messy."



But look how clean you are now.



"Well, I gueeesssss."



Pretty Miss Holly.

#20 certainly is well travelled for a Serta sheep. For a big guy with a not so big number, he sure has infinite appeal.

Robin’s sheep have beautiful coats. Her feeding stalls are interesting and I wonder if it is dark in the there. What a treat to visit her amazing farm.

What a wonderful place for you and 20 o visit.
All those beautiful sheep!! But, my eyes went to the wall behind 20. Look at all that fleece. Wow! Be still my heart...

Doesn't Graham Lamb get jealous of 20?

How cool for you to have gone to see Robin and the flock!!! I saw Robin at Rhinebeck this past weekend...she brought my fiber order with her :)

20 and Sara and Saint Tim were wonderful guests and we always wish they could stay longer. They are all fun, talented, witty and kind. That Andy says Sara needs to write a children's book - The Adventures of 20! He does the coolest things!

Great shot of 20 - looks like he's holding the other sheep's ears!
Your posts make me yearn for a flock of my own...

Bah, ha! I want that first picture framed please. Or wait, a calendar with all the pictures. Yeah, that's it.

Priceless.

I should also mention that someone has offered to sell me a Cotswald ram lamb and you're making it impossible to resist.

I must say I love those pics! I wonder if Santa would bring me a 20? And so did you bring "anything" home from Nistock? ;)
