Photohunt: KNITTED

The Photohunt today is KNITTED.  We couldn't find any pictures of us on the blue knited blanket, and Tipp wouldn't wear his Dr. Who scarf, so we thought we'd show you some old pictures of the sheep the momma and the daddy used to raise when they first moved here.

This guy was named Grackle.  He is an Icelandic sheep.  That means that his great grandparents actually came over to Canada in an airplane, right from Iceland.  And all his relatives are from Iceland, no where else. Iceland sheep are very floofy and you can make tons of yarn balls from their fur.    This grey one is Miss Lizzie and even though she's a girl, she still has horns! Some girls do and some girls don't.  She is only 1 years old here and has this much fur... here's another picture..
WARNING: THIS POST IS RATED N FOR NAKED SHEEP. MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR KITTENS




Oh yeah, and she's pregnant too!










Just another pretty picture so you can see they come in all colors, spots, patterns, etc.  This is Noisette.











And last is Loeki.  She was the momma's favorite.  She lived here for 12 years, which is way old for a sheep.  She was very floofy and soft.  She had twins every year, and triplets the last year she was here.  She went to the Rainbow Bridge, our best momma ever.

So the momma didn't ever knit much from all ths fur stuff that they got shaved, but they sold it to lots and lots of people who did.  And we hope they are still as snuggly warm in it as the sheeps were.

  14. The second I saw those sheep (I have NEVER seen sheep like those in my life) I had to call my Sheltie brother (Dakota) into the room!! He said he would LOVE to herd those sheep!!

    Love, Cody

    1. They would wear Dakota out! These aren't the kind of sheep that herd, they don't cluster up and herd like sheep he'd be used to. They're very independent and the only thing that would bring them together was treats!
