Company for the sheep?

Like my mom said earlier, we were getting ready this afternoon for visitors for the sheep. A woman called this morning and said she wanted to visit to take pictures of her children with our sheep. Well, technically, she wanted photos of her children with white lambs, but after a couple email exchanges to explain we had lambs (but they were several months old, though definitely little because of their breed) and, yes, they're friendly (but that doesn't mean they're going to pose), she was on her way down (a 2 hr drive!) with her children in their Christmas clothes.

Mom and I quickly cleaned out the sheep pen. Visitors for the sheep definitely calls for some cleaning since it's been awhile. Sure, I take photos of our sheep, but I know how to, well, to be frank crop the crap out. Here's a before photo...

(see all the old, wet hay around near the barn door?) Well, we got a wheel barrel, a rake, our electric leaf blower and got to work!! After cleaning it out, we got a little festive in celebration of this family coming for Christmas photos. We put out two bails of hay and put the bench back into the sheep pasture so that the kids coming down could maybe sit there if they wanted to give the sheep cookies. Look how nice it is now:

Hey! What the...

Quit eating the decorations you bad sheep!!!


  1. Can I come and get my Christmas pictures with the sheep and Phantom?
