I went to check the mailbox on Saturday.  As I was peering inside I heard a funny noise and thought that the hinge needed oiling.  I raised my head to find a ewe staring at me with it’s big dumb eyes about 6 feet in front of me!

I stared – she stared and we stood there for about 15 seconds just looking at each other.  I slowly walked inside to grab Max and wandered back out to find her still standing on the footpath.  It wasn’t until her lamb popped out from behind our fence that I realised that she was standing her ground so that I didn’t hurt her baby.

All in all a slightly surreal experience.  This photo was taken the next morning as the same sheep made a meal of the lawn over the road smile

    You see, these sorts of images do not do anything for our reputations. I’m having a hard enough time shrugging off the “Sheep-Shagging” name tag….and now people are seeing that my friends are inviting sheep into their homes….mmm, where did I put those velcro gloves..? Classic photo though…. wink

    Very cute.  We have had lots of turkeys and deer at our place lately.  7 gobblers right up by our front window yesterday morning.
