Now I Know


…what this Jacob ewe looks like. A medieval jester!

Note: Chickens in the Road is moving this weekend to a new dedicated server. This change should make the site load much faster and enhance your experience here. Bear with me as the DNS will resolve at different times for different ISPs. For a period of time, the site will exist on two different servers. I post every day, so if you don’t see a new post, that means your ISP has not yet resolved the DNS and you are still seeing the site on the old server. Please bear with me. The site will resolve to its new DNS for all ISPs shortly. Thank you for being here!

    You’re right, she does. I’ve been so inspired by you that I was up late last night googleing trying to find cotswold sheep in my area. :O) (I didn’t find any, but I did find Angora Rabbits and Alpaca)

  2. Cece says:

    Wow, you are so right. Such a different, but beautiful face.

    Enjoy your day.


  3. Kathryn says:

    She is such a beautiful creature. Can’t wait to see more of your flock!

    Sadly, my eyes started to glaze and cross when I read a little more. That happens when somebody starts talking about computer stuff I do not understand. The best of luck with whatever you are doing, and I do hope you don’t break a nail.

    Oh, do your new sweeties like cookies?

  4. BuckeyeGirl says:

    We’ll forgive most anything while the new server gets set up Suzanne, never fear. I must warn you though since I’m a ‘Geek-Girl’, if you (or any of your geeky minions) break a nail while getting the blog transferred to a dedicated server, you’re doing something wrong. :ladybug:

  5. Christine says:

    I thought that’s what she looked like the minute I saw her. She’s a hoot!

  6. MARY says:

    :sheep: She is gorgeous!!! Suzanne, around here, Ewe’s milk cheese sells for $27.00 per lb.!!!!! Sounds profitable!! My little girl wore a jester hat today for her Mardi Gras party at school, and there is quite a resemblance. LOL!! Have a great weekend all!!!! :happyflower:

  7. kacey says:

    Good luck with the server move. Hope it all goes smoothly!

  8. Suzanne says:

    Still here, can’t help you with the move. But I will follow where ever you go. Love the sheep!

  9. Nancy in Atlanta says:

    Wow! Do you plan to hang bells on the tips of her horns? Can’t wait to see what kind of hats you make for the new kids on the block! I hope Clover doesn’t get jealous of their apparel. And the farm photo of Annabelle “helping” you is adorable.

    Good luck with the “move” – I’ll be right there behind you!

  12. Carol says:

    She is so cute – I just want to give her a big smooch! :heart:

  13. Darlene says:

    You are so right, she does look like a Jester. Perhaps that should be her new name.

    Hope the change goes smoothly for you.

  14. Nancy K. says:

    I absolutely love your blog (and your sheep!), Suzanne, and have added you to my blog roll. That makes it so much easier to keep up with daily posts…

    Happy Weekend!

  17. Leah says:

    Maybe the Jester look WAS inspired by the Jacob.i :heart: Annabelle!

  18. Tori Lennox says:

    ROFL! She does! All she needs are some bells tied to her horns. *g*

  19. catslady says:

    It’s really a beautiful face (although it doesn’t seem to go with the body lol) and Annabelle is just so so cute!!!

  20. Brandy says:

    I didn’t understand the server-speak, but will be here rain or shine. *G* She does look sort of like a medival jester.

  21. Lynn says:

    The sheep are adorable, what are you feeding them?

    P.S. I want Annabelle!

  22. Estella says:

    Hope the transition goes smoothly!

  23. Kim W says:

    QUESTION: Does your changing your server mean that I have to change your link on “my favoriites”?

    Blessings from Ohio…

  24. BuckeyeGirl says:

    *munches* just going to watch the show!! I’m feeling warm fuzzies about your server peeps!

  25. BuckeyeGirl says:

    drat… that didn’t work…. I’m an idiot sometimes, [img][/img] Hope a moderator comes along!!!

  26. Christine says:

    DH says to let us know once you breed the jacobs. We’ll drive out and buy the babies. 🙂

  27. Jodie says:

    I had been introduced to cottswold sheep in the Beatrix Potter mysteries written by Susan Wittig Albert. See this website for more info
    They are set in the beloved Lakes District of England where Beatrix eventually owned huge amounts of land and left it to the National Trust in the U.K. I now want to visit those places since reading the books. Anyway in the books Beatrix owns some cottswold sheep, in deed a very old breed and even in those days a heritage breed. I would settle for growing some “old” roses. That’s my idea of live stock that I can handle other than my cat and hopefully soon to be adopted dog or pupper from a shelter.

  28. stefinity says:

    OMG you are SO right!! I about died when I saw the resemblance! Hope you’re enjoying your new sheep as much as I’m enjoying reading about them!!
