Momma's Lil' Butterball


I tried to take some pictures of Blossom.  I actually took a LOT of pictures of Blossom.  She's eating in each one.  Looking just like a regular sheep and not her normal adorable self.  Yes, she's still pretty darn cute.  When she's not eating.  Momma's lil' butterball :-).


Or butterballs!  That's Lila out front.  She and Blossom are frequently together now.  I'm not sure if they realize they came from the same farm or maybe they are cousins or if it's just because they look quite a bit alike.  Like butterballs ;-).


And the little weasel (Weaslie) finally found us after we moved into the arena.  Poor Tilly.  She thought she'd found us, but her vision has never been outstanding and it took a little convincing for her to make the run through that gate past those mean sheeps to come out and sit with me, Betsy, Hank and Marcel.


And Hank's 'done give up' ;-).  

He's actually just rolling around being a happy dog.  He loves cold weather and it looks to him like things are coming 'round.  Finally.

At least these two butterballs won't end up on a Thanksgiving table!! Such a blessing to have these two beautiful bottle babies ;-)

Oh Hank says it all, the long hot summer is gone, great pic. Have you noticed sheep will group by breed and within that breed by family. I had 3 different breeds of goats at one time, they would lay out in the sun by family, within their breeds, thought they believed in segregation. Mom's with their babies and also other offspring would group together within that breed.
