They’ve Got… Personality

Sophia. My beautiful Sophia. Head sheep in charge. The most affectionate of the flock. Would stand and be petted for hours on end.

Small but mighty Shirley. She takes a licking but keeps on ticking. While the other girls head butt her and each other she sneaks in and gobbles up all the corn. Enjoys a quick scratch on the chin if there is food involved.

Rose. What is there to say about Rose? She’s always true to her character. Perhaps not the brightest of the bunch, but makes up for it with lovability.

Laverne. Shirley’s sidekick. Distant but warming up now that she has discovered the joy of cookies. Would like affection but doesn’t want to fight the other girls for it. Willing to stand in the shadows.

Dorothy. Sophia’s sidekick. Scared of her own shadow. Doesn’t want to be touched, but likes her cookies. Loves to kick up her heals and act goofy. Often seen bouncing across the pasture.

Blanche. Cookie monster. Love machine. Has no concept of personal space. Very independent. Would like to take on Sophia as Head Sheep in Charge someday

Like children, they are all as different as can be yet I love them all the same.

Some day I would like to be able to pet my sheep, I may have to wait for the second generation.

They are all so dear looking. I would LOVE to get my hands on their wool.

What lovely personalities - just like children! My Calico Queen has lived with me for 3 years, loves to be petted and to sit on or near me, but has never been a cuddle cat. If I make a move to scoop her into my arms, she's gone! Get your hugs any way you can!

Your sheep are so sweet! I don't know what it is about sheep that makes me love them so much - raised a few in high school and loved it. I guess I need to learn to spin wool so that I can have an excuse as to why I need a couple.
