Remember that old adage "be careful what you wish for"? A Shetland shepherdess close by me had an adorable little ewe that was such a pet! Sheperdess Sue named her Jewel and after a little while she came to live at our farm. Pet sheep can be wonderful and then again... they seem to know how to push your buttons easily!...or tear them off your sweater, whichever opportunity presents itself first!
Jewel had twin ewe lambs for us last year and again this year. She is the best mommy!
Her she is with this year's girls...the "little holstein" and Chocolate Chip who takes after her mommy for fleece color...badgerface? katmoget for sure.
