    Our 2 and 4 year old granddaughters are spending the weekend with us. It rained all day yesterday so I didn’t take them outside.
    The 4 year old stayed in with Papaw this morning to watch Disney. The 2 year old went outside with Mamaw.

    This is why I wanted Ringo so much!

    He is a little afraid of her. He wouldn’t let her touch him. Little people are scary! LOL LOL

    I can't wait to see your lambs next year! I took this picture yesterday at mom's place. Her neighbour brings his triplets to her so she can check if the are doing o.k.
    I love them jumping lambs!!

    That's funny. Syringa had the same reaction to kids. She looked at them with big eyes and flared nostrils. There's something suspicious about knee high humans!

    Yup, she offered him an animal cracker and one for her. LOL

    I'll add a couple of registered ewes in the future, their rams, if they are good breeding rams, will be left intact. They will go up for sale, if they don't sell in a reasonable time, then off to slaughter they go.

    Those look like Dutch Spotted sheep and man, does she have an udder!! That's a breed I wouldn't mind having just for the meat and milk, also the hides.
