Magical Creatures

Mar
19


I’m amazed every day when I see the lambs in the meadow. I love the way they run after their mothers as if they might die if they’re separated by more than a step. I love how they sound when they cry. Each morning, I look hopefully for the Cotswolds to see if they have created any more of these magical creatures. So far, I’m still waiting…

    What great coloring, they truly do look magical. We won’t be having any babies this year. We didn’t get anyone bred, but looking forward to next year.

    You’ll be taking plenty of pics, I’m sure, as these magical creatures grow and become frisky and playful. Do I see a ‘NAME CONTEST’ in the near future? Will they have magical names also??

    Your stories remind me of the James Herriot books…this descriptions of the countryside dotted with sheep and their new babies. You should write your own version of “All Creatures Great and Small.”

    James Herriot was my favorite writer….I read everything he wrote and laughed and cried all the way through every single book. Suzanne’s version of “All Creatures Great and Small” would be “All Critters, Big and Little” since she lives out in the beautiful country of West Virginia!

    The babies are just adorable! There are lambs and baby goats springing up on the farms around here and they romp and play like there’s no tomorrow. Cute, cute. Would love to have one of my very own. You are so lucky to get to play with them!

    Names! Names! They NEED names! Right now they all are just LAMBS. Just a GROUP. But they need to be respected. They need to be INDIVIDUALS. Ask Clover, she’ll tell you. But you’ll have to PAY her. We work for free. Or BBB’s. Or a candle. Or a bar of soap. Or…, ok we take cookies too. But don’t mention that to Clover! She might come hurt us.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
