Checking In With The Ts


Tavia, everyone's little favorite.  Even though you shouldn't have favorites ;-).  What a sassy, inquisitive little lamb.  She'll come up and sniff a cookie...but no takers yet.



Interestingly, the two multi horn girls (Tavia and Tabitha) tend to hang out together...


...and these two two horns (Thelma and Tara) pair up as well.


Poor Tessa isn't really as left out as she looks here.  The whole group is a tight knit family.

They do mingle with the older Jacobs some, but the older Jacobs are, well, old...and boring.  Much of the day the girls are off on adventures of their own.  Today is the first cold rainy night since they moved into the side field.  After moving Heidi the Grouch back to the main flock, they feel much safer coming into the barn.  I'm getting ready to go check on them, just to make sure.

Oh my gosh, it's so green there!!! Jealous! It will be 2 more months at best before we're there. So glad your new girls are doing good and enjoying the grass.

Must be an angle and sunset thing as I really don't think it's that green out there. Seems pretty brown to me, but we are starting to get a hint of green...just not how it looks in those pictures...I don't think... I guess maybe comparing to snow it's green :-D.

It sure looks nice and green out there...we are showing tinges here. Love those new little sheeps!

They appear to be the feline "Bengals" of the sheep world... beautiful, with a touch of wild child :-)

I'm so glad the Ts are fitting in, even if they aren't too enthused about their elders! I wonder what Queen Elizabeth would have thought of them? I told my husband the other day about them and I said at least it doesn't look like you'll be retiring any time soon . . . . making it to one of your "Hug A Sheep" events is at the top of my bucket list when he retires!

They sure are colourful. Must make their fleece and yarn quite interesting.

She has a very sweet face.

She is real cute...well they all are. I hope the transition goes well:)

I just love all those spots. Jacobs are my favorites- several colors and usually several types of wool in every fleece. And the horns, especially the multiple ones, just enchant me.

Love the Jacobs but you know who my favorite is...

I love your pictures - they so often have a sort of misty, ethereal quality to them that projects a feeling of soft warmth and serenity. And the green! Oh goodness, it's been so long since I've seen any green on the ground. Way too much snow for that. And it just got worse! I might see green by the end of April if I'm lucky.

My favorite kind of sheep, Jacobs ! Your flock looks lovely and healthy.

I have noticed my Jacobs tend to hang out with certain others, especially sister, mother, grandma ties. It is as if each of my older sheep has raised up her own flock-within-a-flock.

Interesting, how they are pairing up. They're organizing themselves by horn type. So neat and tidy. :)
