My Favorite Sheep

Just for fun I decided to make one of those popular black and white car stickers.

MFS is our shorthand for anything involving the website and besides, I figured MFS worked better than PP ;-).

Saint Tim is obviously my local print shop, but he doesn't do bumper stickers. I found makestickers.com on an online search and I have to say, other than Zappo's, they are the most impressive internet business I've dealt with (not getting paid to say this).

Their website was super easy to use, they uploaded my design, had it printed and in the mail (with free shipping) in just a couple hours. On a Friday afternoon. The stickers arrived yesterday and I love them.

I stuck one on one of my (shhhh) favorite sheep. Can you guess who this is? A hint, that is Woolliam standing on tippy toes, peeking over his back.

"Huh? I thought I was your favorite sheep???"

You are, Woolliam, but don't tell anyone I said that okay? It's our little secret.

Of course here are a few of my other favorite sheep ;-). Mia, Renny and Henrietta in the background.

Ewen McTeagle and Graham Lamb - face off.

GL: "I thought I was her favorite sheep!"

EMcT: "Yeah? Well who's wearing the sticker?"

"I can't believe this. I thought I was your favorite sheep."

You are, Keebs, but don't tell anyone I said that okay? It's our little secret.

MSS - My Silliest Sheep (actually she's not, she just looks that way with her teeth sticking out ;-). Also my bossiest sheep. Also, probably my oldest sheep. We don't know how old Elizabeth is, but she's got a lot of gray, losing some teeth and fighting Arthur Itis this winter.

MFJS - My Favorite Jacob Sheep, Jester, who's also getting up there in years and not feeling super great and is My Worrying-est Sheep this week. B. Willard, other than battling a nasty graham cracker addiction, is feeling Much Better now, thank you very much.

With that sticker on his hip, Ewen looks like a fancy thoroughbred who's recently gone through the horse sales. A really tall thoroughbred.

My big baby...and one of my all time favorite sheep :-).

The nice warm afternoon made for fun sheep photos. I just hope B. Willard, Sherman, Lila, Marcel, Miss Ewenice, Petunia, Popcorn PeePee Pants, Rebecca Boone, Buddy, Boudreaux, Caspar Belly, Emily...don't find out they missed the post today.

But they all know they are my favorite sheep ;-).

Adorable! You reminded me of the time we went out to the pasture in the a.m. & found a new-to-us goat. She still had the auction sticker on her. We are about 4 miles from the auction house so I don't know if she escaped from them or from a buyer who was coming up the road with her. I am guessing she saved herself from being someone's dinner. She lived several more years with us until she just passed quietly. But she wore that auction sticker for a good 6 weeks.

Pretty tough to pick just one favorite in that crowd.

So cute! The stickers were a great idea.

Michelle said...

Loved this. :-)

Alice said...

You need lots of stickers for your farm family, and also some that say MFC, MFH, MFD for the cats, horses, and dogs so they feel special too ( assuming they can read the stickers) ;-)

A very fortunate flock of sheep they are too, I'd say!


I'm liking your new camera...

I'm gonna tell Mom! said...
