Some Happier Snow Faces



Chocula, reviving his role as The Contemplative Sheep.  Look, Baaxter, he's even smiling! ;-)


Over exposed Murphy, but I think it's an interesting shot, also smiling.


Baby Belly.  Hard to tell if she's smiling, but she sure looks like she's enjoying watching it snow, doesn't it?


Spud, also smiling.  Look how similar he and his brother Hershey look.  Neither mind the snow one bit.


A disclaimer - Hershey is one of the very most handsome sheep I have ever been around.  That being said, if you let your mom cut your hair and it grows out funny, pushing your awesomely cool dreadlocks off to the sides, and then she takes your picture during a freak snow storm...  

Other than this unfortunate (but hilarious) picture, the "special cut" he got last spring has worked well all year and we'll be repeating it later this month.  I kept it clipped short most of the year, but let it slide the last few months.  Doesn't he look like some weird uncle from the 70s?


The happiest face of all.  My new favorite picture.  Two of my very favorite subjects, Liddy and snow, and I love how she's looking at me.  If you can look at this (click to biggify) and not smile back at her, well, I just don't want to know.

Off to knit for the afternoon!

  7. Google James Earl Jones in Conan the Barbarian. That's what Hershey's weird haircut looks like to me.
    Your sheep take such great snow pictures! Chocula is such a regal sheep. Can we hope for a snowy Petunia picture in the coming days?

  17. Will there be a bottle baby this spring or is it just the luck of the lambing season locally? Wondering if you actively seek them out or if they just find you :) Enjoyed looking at old baby pictures in the archives the last few weeks! Is there a calendar page index so I can test my guess who's pictured with Hank?

    1. I always wait and see if someone needs me. I'm almost afraid to get another lamb after Liddy. Such big shoes to fill ;-).

      That's Blossom (aka Baba) and Baaxter close to Hank. I can't tell who the other two are, but if I get a minute, I'll go back and see if I took some other pictures at the same time that show more of the sheep. Baaxter is frequently in love with Baba :-).

  20. I do love your cool, beautiful sheep.

  21. Liddy! You didn't have to cue me to smile - as soon as I saw that freckle face, I grinned back at her!

    If you have a 2016 bottle baby, Liddy will be *SO* jealous.
