Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

Lambs Shambs

What's a girl got to do to get some attention around here??

As I was playing, er, working to get Rain and her new babies settled in, I knew the other natives were restless. Unfair treatment! Unfair distribution of treats! No scratches, no attention! I could feel their resentment, but I could also feel---something watching me. I had been taking some pictures of the babies, when I finally couldn't stand it any more and turned around to...this....

Annalea was slumped against the fence, head propped on the wire, lower lip hanging out. It looks like she is baa-ing, but she isn't--just standing there in full pout mode. She wants a special stall too, and treats and royal treatment. Perhaps I read too much into the actions and expressions of my sheepie, but really--what else could you call this?

I snapped a picture, laughed hysterically and smuggled her a cookie.

Such an endless supply of free entertainment, and no cable fees required. :-)

Hee! I'm sure they are definitely thinking "unfair!" I want to come over and play with the lambs soon. ;)

Oh that is too funny! Reminds me of the picture of Bert pawing at the gate, like he was saying "Let me out!"
