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.

When Good Sheep Have Had Enough.....

The following pictures aren't pretty. But when a sheep has had enough, even a good sheep, will pout. Dramatically. When the last of the lambs were born during the night, which were Duckie and her twins, I helped with the first lamb. It was the black smirslet ram, so I was doing quite a bit of ooh-ing and aah-ing over him. Just like I had 14 times before. I guess Gracie had had it up to her sheepie ears with all the attention going to the cute little babies. I mean, hey she is cute too, and she is sweet, and nice and only sometimes gets rude if there are crackers involved. So into the barn she stomped. Straight past Duckie, the new lamb and me. Up to the corner of the barn she went, and flounced down with a heavy sigh---with her backside pointedly positioned in my direction. I think that pretty much says it all.

Gracie Pouts
Sorry Gracie, I'll try and give you more of the attention you need and crave. Oh, and cookies too.

Have a good week!

Tammy, I had to give some attention to both Skittles and the wethers. They had the same look Gracie has on her face. "Nobody loves me. I'm gonna eat some worms" kind of look. Skit laid his head on my lap and rolled his eyes in sheer ecstacy at the chin scratches and pats I gave him. Poor boys! LOL!
