Annabelle is Coming, Annabelle is Coming


Back at the sheep farm, baby Annabelle has been growing and growing, in fact doubling in size!

She takes three bottles a day.
She likes to follow people around.
And this weekend…..

….she’s moving here!



  1. SkippyMom says:

    Yay! For Annabelle.

    What happened to the “maid” post of your daughter setting the silver service back after polishing it? I had a question about it and neglected to ask it when it was up, um…15 minutes ago? Is my internet going weird again?

    Anyway…who is Anna going to hang out with, the goats? She is so cute, but Clover will forever be my fav’. I need to send her cookies. ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. Gail says:

    Look out Clover…competition for cuteness is coming! What an adorable little lamb. Love the name Annabelle.

  11. DragonLady says:

    After looking at Annabelle’s pictures, how can people eat lamb, any lamb? Never have – never will. She’s too cute! :sheep:

    Now we know – the lamb really did “follow her to school one day!” She is too cute – it makes me want one.

  15. Beth Brown says:

    Annabelle is a sweetheart! Lucky you and lucky her!

    Beth in PA :sheep:

  16. Amber says:

    Such a sweet little thing! She’s adorable!

  17. Robin G. says:

    At this point, you should probably charge small children to come and pet your animals ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. Nancy in Atlanta says:

    I can only repeat what everyone else said – she’s adorable! And – will she bunk with Clover and the kids? Lucky Coco – a new baby to guard.

  19. Christine says:

    Awwww, yes! Bring on the cuteness!

  20. Carol says:

  22. kathryn magendie says:

    West Virginia! :woof: My homestate! :snoopy: – I was born in Charleston! (my novel Tender Graces coming out is set in West Virginia – so louisiana, too – but WVA is the main focus…! and no, I’m not here trying to advertise the novel – *smiling* – I’m just excited to come across a fellow WVA girl…I have family who still lives there – in CHarleston and around…)

    I’m so glad Gumbo writer linked you – now I’ll go look around, do some reading….*smiling* ๐Ÿ˜€

  23. Suzette says:

    I can’t wait to see her cuddliness at The Farm! Such a sweetie!

  24. cndymkr says:

    The milk mouth is just killing me. Congratulations!

  25. Kim W says:

    OH…MY…STARS!!! That’s one of the cutest faces I’ve ever seen – and that includes my kids! Hahahaha!!! :snoopy: :sheepjump:

  26. catslady says:

    Their loss is your gain – I don’t know how they could give her up! I get attached very easily :heart:

  27. Estella says:

    Annabelle is too cute!

  28. Lynn says:


    Annabelle is a beautiful girl! But now I am going to worry about such a little baby on her own and away from her family and sheep friends. Who will be her protector and mentor? Will she be an only lamb??

  29. Suzanne McMinn says:

    Lynn, she won’t be an only sheep for long! (She’s not bonded with her mother. That’s why she’s being bottle-fed.)

  30. Daisy says:

    Adorable. Simply adorable.

  31. Claudia W. says:

    Must be spring is around the corner…Annabelle coming home over the weekend! YAY!!! How cute is that little baby. I bet you are so excited! I know I am and she’s not even coming to my house!

  32. Flatlander says:

    Ohhhhh Suzanne.
    Love the name, love her cute face…and already know I will love the stories about her.

  33. Jodie says:

    OMG… a baby lamb. :sheep: I will have to find some plane fare and come for a visit to see a sheep-oo… that’s what we call the sheep on the farm that’s in the middle of Plano near us. A farm in the middle of a suburb of Dallas. They have sheep, llamas and cows and the odd horse or herd now and then. You never know what’s going to be grazing in their pastures season to season. They rotate livestock between a few pastures around Plano to keep the farm property tax exemption on the land. But it is a working farm… BTW internet thanks for the prayers. I had a great job interview today with the city of Dallas computer group. I may be employed again soon. That will turn the next few months of severance pay into savings and debt payments! Woo Hoo!

  34. Jan @ Greensboro Daily Photo says:

    Loving the sheep. A welcomed addition to your farm, I’m sure.

    Our 2/13 daily city photo blot post features pieces of WV glass. I also added polymer clay.

    Now that you’ve got candle making mastered, perhaps you can set about making polymer clay items. They say you can repair just about anything with duct tape. Well, I maintain that you can replace just about anything with polymer clay. In the photo, you will see that I replaced the original Fenton Hobnail bottle’s stopper with a wine cork with a polymer clay heart glued on top.


  35. Runningtrails says:

    Annabelle is just too cute!Will she live with Clover’s family? I can’t wait to see pictures of her growing up. I’d like to see more stories and pictures of Coco, too. She’s gorgeous!

    Polymer clay is great! I make jewelry with it and use it to repair things too. You just can’t use it anywhere near food and have to make sure it’s all scrubbed clean in the kitchen. It is extremely poisonous!

  36. Wendy says:

    Oh you are going to love bottle feeding a lamb. Morgan will too.
    Nothing spells spring like a baby needing feeding.

  37. Rituparna says:

    Oh so very cute !
    This reminds me of the time when my bitch dona had had a litter.
    We would feed those bundles of joy with small feeding bottles.
