Un-weaned

Liddy hangs out used to hang out with her aunties almost all the time. She'd come out into the aisleway to eat lamb cereal twice a day and hang out with me while I did  morning and evening chores, but she'd been happy to go back to her endless salad bar and cushy fence plank bed.

Saturday morning I was putting together a metal stand that I could set the Del Boca Vista Annex fan up on to maybe get a little more air flowing into the rest of the barn aisle.  I asked Liddy if she'd like to come out and help.  She did.

Halfway through I had to make a quick run to the house help a friend with something on the computer.  While I was there I decided to grab some lunch.  As I walked back to the barn almost an hour later...I remembered that Liddy was loose in the barn!  I took off running, fearing the worst - pillaged bags of wool, chewed off flowers, lamb level electric cords :-o.

Not to worry I got lucky.  Most sheep would have ransacked the entire place.  Liddy?


"I love when the fan blows my ears back!"

She spent the rest of the afternoon there, cuddled up next to her favorite bag of hay.  I had to use a Cheerio bribe to get her back to Blossom and Lila.  Now every time I'm in the barn, she's yelling to come out - not to see me, but her beloved fan.


This might be my toughest weaning yet!

In case you missed these on Twitter:



Spud is feeling much better.  Whew!  We sheared the bellies of Hershey, Woolliam and Murphy over the weekend and that seems to be helping them.  We added another fan to the middle stall and the open aisleway and extra water tank has been a popular addition.  Other than keeping plenty of salt set out, there's not much else we can do.  I hate summer :-/.

Miserable hot here, so I can only imagine how hot and humid it is for you. Liddy has the right idea! Chance and I sleep with a fan blowing on us too! :)

Madame Liddy is too precious for words. She knows what she wants and how to get it. I loved seeing Hank as well. Great post.

Liddy grew! She looks like a big girl now. Love Hank with the sheep.

Sleeping with a fan going is the best! Liddy girl knows!!

Liddy says she's special and deserves her own fan. As well as her own bag of hay.

HEY, did you hear what Cheryl said??? haha Maybe Hank would like a bare belly too?

Well... Of Course Liddy should have a fan and a pillow. Maybe a side table with Cherrios :-) And seriously, with this heat, So Glad everyone is doing OK ~ I agree! I.Hate.Summer. (that's why I hide at 14,000')

I don't blame Liddy a bit - I think she is one smart lamb to want to cuddle up to that fan! This summer is truly miserable. I can't wait for October.

Liddy does the best happy sheep faces ever. :)

Well, it's official. I hate summer too. Never thought I'd live to say that, but sheep and summer do. not. mix.
