Here they are, in all their fuzzy little cuteness!
Finn and Nora are twins, born right before Easter 2018. They both are dark-fleeced with a bit of tan markings, but now the fleece has covered any lighter coloring. In the early photos, Finn has the most tan and white on his face, Nora not so much. Gradually, it gets harder to tell them apart. Thankfully, the longer I’ve known them, their personalities stand out more than their fleece color. They love to prance around at dusk and leap off of straw bales. They are now eating hay and grass as they are slowly weaning off. Mum likes to keep tabs on them to make sure they are behaving. Penny is like the fun aunt they hang out with, but sometimes leads them in mischief. Finn likes to make little hmmm noises like he’s humming. Nora is quiet like Freya. It has been such a joy watching them grow and soon they will be six months old.
When we were visiting the flock that I got my sheep from, this girl was the brave one who came up to say hello. Penny is still the first one to come up to the fence, and sometimes puts her front legs up on the fence, just like our dog does when she’s excited (they’re friends by the way). Penny’s spunky, kind of bossy, likes to chew the snaps on my coat, and always has something to say.
And…she always seems to get hay all over her face no matter how often I pick it off.
This is Freya, one of my Corriedale ewes. Most of the time she is shy, but she gets excited when it’s time for her grain treat. She runs laps, and prances around in anticipation. My goal is to catch that on video eventually.
