It was chilly, but the wind and rain held off and over 60 people came out to hug some sheep yesterday, including a neighbor who'd recently moved back "home" and told about when she was a little girl, driving sheep (on her pony) from her daddy's farm on the next road over to her uncle's farm (ours)!
We set the hugging pen up inside the barn and I stayed in there most of the time answering questions and trying to monitor cookie consumption. Much of the time though it mostly resembled the zombie apocalypse "Must have cookies. Feed cookies. Feed cookies now. No cookies? Moving on to next person."
Luckily Amy brought her camera and got some great shots.
I love this picture of Buddy.
Gorgeous sweater! Yes, the amazing Aaron. And B. Willard.
"What, you are out of cookies? Need more cookies. Must have cookies." Petunia
Double fisting it.
In the beginning Blossom tried to push her way behind my legs to hide, but it didn't take long before she was right in the middle of Feed A Sheep A Cookie Day.
The barn swing. Always a popular spot.
And Graham Lamb, hugging and kissing his way through the day.
By the cookie apocalypse.
Not only does Amy take beautiful photographs, but she's an amazing harpist too. She played in the Wool House most of the afternoon and folks that stepped in to warm up didn't come back out for a long time. I hope this link will work, but if not, definitely check back. She wrote a song for Handy.
Everyone here enjoyed Hug a Sheep Day and we're all looking forward to the next one...aka as every day! Hope you enjoyed your day as well :-).
