2014 Hug A Sheep Day - Part Three

"Look at me.  Look down.  I'm over here."

"Hey!  I'm over here.  Can't you see me?!?"  

"Much better!"

Baaxter LOVED Hug A Sheep Day.  He worked first shift and then when the whistle blew for a shift change, he refused to go back to the barn.

He never let up, working straight through, late into the afternoon.  

And when we opened the gate to lead everyone across the driveway into the front field at the end of the afternoon, he ducked away and headed down to the kids playing bag toss. 

He obviously wasn't leaving, so they decided to play through.

And then one of his new friends bought a hug from him for a handful of clovers.  (He's pretty cheap ;-).

He made another detour when he spotted the treat table.  (He's very smart ;-).

So Auntie Reg made him work for (yet) another cookie.  (And quite clever ;-).

And then he went to check out the spinning wheels.  (Not a bit shy ;-).

And got to try on a warm wool scarf.  (And very handsome ;-).

He can't wait for the next party!

Wish I could have been there. My daughter came down from Cincinnati and her kids have really bad allergies to many animals so I was afraid to bring them. They sometimes need meds in my house with dogs and cats.

Loving your Hug A Sheep Day photos! I am a glutton for adorable sheep pix, and you have a bunch of wooly critters with Attitude!

Of course Baaxter is so pushy, ah, oops, I mean forthcoming and friendly! He probably still thinks he should still be living in your home (maybe he does? ;) )

This year was SAFF. Must persuade DH next year we travel to KY...

What a great day for Baaxter! Has he requested his own business cards yet? ("Baaxter, Social Ambassador", "Baaxter, Official Hug-A-Sheep Day Public Relations Assistant", "Baaxter, P.R. Spokes-sheep". . . . ) :-)

I so look forward to your posts and pictures each day. . .thank you so much for all that you do to share your life with us!

Warm Regards, Lisa in Oregon
