Back to the Sheep Farm


Saturday morning, Mike and Kathy from the sheep farm called to say, “We have a baby for you.”

Oh my.

But it’s not this baby.

Or that baby.

Or– Did you see the little black baby?

It’s not any of these babies.

Mrs. Ewe: “You’re not taking my baby!”

I’m not, I promise!

Not yours, either!

Stop worrying girls. Let’s synchronize. To the left…..

To the right….

Okay, never mind. I see you’ve got your wool in a twist now. I’m not talking about any of your babies! You are all good mamas!

I’m talking about this baby. She’s just two days old and she’s living in the sheep farmers’ house because she’s had trouble nursing with mama. She drinks from a bottle and she wears diapers. In a few months, I’ll get to bring her home.

Meet Annabelle……tomorrow!

    Oh my gosh, could they possibly be any cuter? I think I’m in love with wool babies! I can’t wait to see the baby!!!

  2. Patty says:

    Oh they are SO cute!! I can’t wait to see Annabelle! She’s very lucky to have such great humans taking care of her and to get to go live at your farm when she’s bigger.

    :sheep: Oh my!Every morning is a new surprise on your blog.It’s the first place I go after pouring myself a cup of coffee.
    Those babies are so adorable, and I can’t wait to see the little one.How spoiled she will be!
    Annabelle, you are one lucky little lamb.
    Also want to say I voted for you yesterday.
    Now for my second cup. I can go on with my life. :turtle:

    Awww. I love Annabelle already (I’m kind of partial to that name.) I can’t wait to see more of her.

  5. Claire says:

    Adorable! What a sweet bunch of babies. I can’t wait to see pictures of Annabelle. Yesterday we adopted two sheep from our local shelter. What a mess they were in – just a huge mess of burrs. Not cute like your baby. But, we trimmed one of them last night and it has made a tremendous difference. I blogged about it so you can see the photos if you like. I hope they’ll enjoy their new home here.

  6. kacey says:

    Oh cool. Can’t wait to see a pic!! They are SO CUTE.

  7. Traci Best says:

    Oh that is just *mean*! You are such a tease! WE WANT TO SEE THE BABY!!!! 😉 LOL


  8. Suzanne says:

    Those babies are all adorable! Can’t wait to meet Annabelle… and to find out the reactions from the other 4 legged ones at your farm! (Coco must be over the moon!)

  9. Linda says:

    How cute they all are. I can’t wait to see Annabelle. I would have never thought about putting baby diapers on a lamb.

  10. Abiga/karen says:

    She looks so cute, at least what I saw of her so far. We are still working on getting a goat in the spring but my son in law hates cold weather so no fence repair til it is warm so no goat til fence is repaired and no sheep til we get a goat etc etc. Oh where oh where is my 62(52) in central IL?? :no: Blessings.

  11. Julie says:

    I cannot BELIEVE you’re teasing us like this!!! I can’t wait to see that precious little lamb!

  12. Kay says:

  14. Nancy in Atlanta says:

    Who could NOT love a face like the white lamb in pic #2?!!! I want one in my apt.! And what the others said, Suzanne, you are a tease! I want to see more of Annabelle. :sheep:

  15. Christine says:

    Awwwwwwww, look at that little diaper! How stinkin’ cute is THAT?

  16. Jen says:

    Sooooo cute! I can hardly wait to see her.

  17. Susan says:

    They are all so cute! I’m looking forward to seeing Annabelle. :sheep:

  18. Becky says:

    A few months?! I know you’ll be visiting everyday! I know I would.
    I can’t wait to see the other end. tee hee
    And I’ve got my finger crossed for the bloggie award.

  19. Wendy says:

    Why don’t you take her home now? It is so fun to raise a bottle baby.

  20. gwen says:

  23. Barbee' says:

  27. Melissa Marsh says:

    I literally said out loud, “NOOOOOO!” when I scrolled down and saw that I couldn’t meet the new baby until tomorrow! :hissyfit:

  28. Estella says:

    You must be so excited!

  29. tabbimama says:

    I already voted for you, but am rethinking that on the grounds that you are holding out on us with the Annabelle pictures. We WANT to see her NOW! Ok, sorry, I didn’t mean it. I can wait until tomorrow. But now longer than that. Please.

  30. Fern says:

    Oh, my…they are so cute! Hope Morgan enjoyed her b-day and glad she made it home safely…I too know about those W.Va roads…they can get nasty slick so do be careful out there. hopefully we’ll all see some warmer weather soon…it’s nasty cold here by Lake Erie I can tell you that…only in the teens and below with about a foot of snow on the ground…I can’t wait for spring!!!
