Sideshow Bob

Around here, the more names you've been given usually reflects how much we like you. Keebler is also Keebs and Kaner, Count Chocula is also Choculon, Murphy is now Donut Murphy...  There are some exceptions, like Miss Tilly/Weaslie/Tilly Bobby/Short Round/The Little Shriner or Graham Lamb/Kevin/bleep bleep Kevin. Just kidding ;-).  


Hershey's other name is Sideshow Bob.  That's "little" Burrnie/Burrnerd racing to keep up :-D.


Hershey is only Sideshow Bob because of his hair, not his character.  And if you're wondering why I'm calling this super light gray sheep Hershey after just seeing his chocolate brown bag of roving from Ohio Valley, it's because that was his baby fleece sheared last August and his hair has since turned almost white! Probably from living with Graham ;-)  

It's very pretty with his dark legs and head, but still, confusing as to why he'd be named "Hershey". Hopefully you can biggify and see his moppy top.

Some more shots from last week.

I wish I could be there right now, laying in that soft grass, and looking at the sheep grazing around me. I would spend all day like that:-). Well, at least the early morning hours, before the sun hits again. Will it be hot and humid today?

Ha, ha, Hershey looks real funny.:-) Like a mischievous teenage boy with that mop of hair on top of his pretty head.

Today is only mid 80s so a big relief from 95 and humid yesterday. Bigger cool down coming mid-week so hoping to get the boys 'tutered during the break so it's less stressful on them.

It must be so peaceful to watch those sheep graze :)

I am sooooo looking forward to the cool down. Who knew that a polar vortex could be a good thing?

The mop top is gorgeous!

Such a peaceful scene - no matter what the temperature...

Yes, around here it is about the same. Esther Lester Puddin Pie, then there is Myrtel Girtle, Famous Amos pain in the BUTT, and of course Horrible- his name just says it all. :)

Great! I like farms and you shared very nice pictures with cattle. Nice....

Terry said...

Love the mop top.

Look at that light gray Hershey! You'd think he'd raised a flock of lambs and worried about sending them to school late night dates, hanging around a rough ram crowd.....! As for that tuft on his head...... Only his hairdresser knows for sure ;-)

Lisa W said...

Uh, oh. The 't' word :-) Those poor boys.

I think of my buddy Miss T. as 'Boo Boo'. She just seems like a 'Boo Boo', don't you think?

Pam said...

Kaner?? How did that come about?

thecrazysheeplady said...

Tilly's something... ;-)

Kaner is from Patrick Kane, a Blackhawk's player with "cool hair" that gets really long and curly during the playoffs. Tim...
