Our Sheep

Remember this little angel that we had to bottle feed? If not, his name is Roman and at a time when my husband was quite ill, Roman did wonders for his soul!

Well - Roman grew up..

..but he still thinks of himself as the family dog. Here is waiting to get fed! None of the other sheep stand on the fence and yell at us to bring the food!

This is our herd ram, Ramses.

Roman does not like Ramses and head butts him every chance he gets. Roman is not brave enough to do it from the front yet..so he waits for a chance to do it from behind!

There is a reason Cheviot sheep are called jumping sheep...

..as you can see in this picture as well.

Here is Roman trying to sneak a bite of food before it has been poured into the dishes.

Now they are happy...

Roman was so cute when he was little and is becoming quiet the handsome guy, isn't he? Cute post. The names you've given your sheep are very clever!

Oh to have a sheep like Roman!! You are a lucky duck! Sheep and a corgi. Is there any better combination?

Julie, Roman is darling...we raise goats and I have raised many of them in my kitchen in a playpen.

I saw your wreath and love it..I am not real creative, but I might try to do something similar.
