They're Here

 Our Shetland sheep came home today at 8 weeks of age.

 We were so excited to have them home - them, well, not so much.

 Poor little babies are scared to death, and just flocked up together.

 Except when Flynn went up to the fence and then Amber took a look.

 We had to put the halter on them to move them while we fixed the feeder in the barn.

 It was pretty funny between them jumping up in the air, or playing dead on their sides and refusing to move.

 They did a little better if we kept them real close to each other.  Opal would tried to hide under Amber, which is funny, because she is the bigger sheep.

 This is Amber.

 This is Opal.

I think my whole life I have had an unspoken desire to have sheep. I am so thankful to God for these little blessings!


  1. I love sheep! There's so much to learn from those silly little creatures... I loved going through the gospel of John with my kids and talking about the similarities between us and them:)

  2. How incredibly fun!!! They are precious!! I bet the kids are loving all their new animals!
