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!

Liddy is totally smiling and Hershey has mutton chops for facial hair.

It's that charming tilt to her head along with the winning smile!

Karen Larko said...

Your beautiful sheep make me smile!

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?

Fiona said...

Oh gosh yes.....YarnKettle thats just it! It is a strange look! Great photos though!

Denny Gross said...

Hershey's got mutton chops!

Michelle said...

These pictures really pull at the heartstrings! I LOVE the photo of Chocula. What a handsome face.

Bonnie K said...

Great photos. They look like content sheep.

Lisa Smith said...

I absolutely love the expression on sweet Liddy's face! And Chocula, what a follow up to his famous 2014 Contemplative Sheep photo! Beautiful photos of beautiful subjects.....

Hilary said...

Those are great faces.. and photos to match. And I love the names.

Alice said...

Oh what sweetness in their smiles!

Adriene J said...

What a perfect day. Made me smile. :)

Lisa @ things here lately... said...

Oh, my goodness!!! I CANNOT handle the cuteness!!! :)

Laurie in Maine said...

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?

thecrazysheeplady said...

That is it exactly!

thecrazysheeplady said...

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 :-).

fjord girl said...

The first one is priceless- simply beautiful- I LOVE THAT PICTURE!!!
The last is as if Liddy has a content smirk- great captures- all!

I need orange said...

Liddy is such a sweet girl. I love her.

thecrazysheeplady said...

No :-(. Only lasted about a day and a half :'-(.

Cheryl West said...

I do love your cool, beautiful sheep.

sophy0075 said...

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.

Susan said...

Chocula had such a sly look to his face. The pictures were fabulous!

Reneelynn said...

Liddy is adorable!!!!!
