Here's our new little herd of sheep. Daughter Terre, Abbey mare, and Kelly pony are checking them out. They have adjusted well and Baaaaaa for food everytime we walk into the barn. I was a little worried about them because they stood up for 4 1/2 hours in the back of the pickup on their way home from Marysville, Ohio. We stopped a couple of times to check and try to get them to take a drink of water. The temperature didn't get really high back there because the day was overcast and we came through a couple rain showers.

The Freshcorns who bred these darlings are a kind, caring, animal loving family. Definitely, my kind of people. I appreciate and thank them for allowing us to bring these sheep home.

Hurray Maple! Sheep on the farm! Now when can we expect chickens, pigs, cows....?!? Rabbits?

LOL...they look adorable and I can't wait to see them. Enjoy getting to know them and love them. Sheep are frustrating, adorable, lovable, stupid, smart, cunning and clueless - but all in all, my very favorite animal on earth ;)
