spontaneous decisions!

Yesterday was one of the worsest, horriblest, rottenest days for a while! It bucketed down and was windy and bitterly cold. Then last night before tea, the worst thing happened, one of our friends sheep had it's lamb! Horror! The poor wee thing, fancy being exposed to such disgustingly yucky weather!
We left it with it's mum for a couple of hours and then we decided to put it in the shed for the night. (I think it's really an excuse so I can cuddle it and give it bottles and talk to it! lol)

This morning there was snow on the hills, and although it was cold, it wasn't raining. I gave her a nice warm bottle, so she had something warm in her tummy and put her back outside with her mum.

The reunion was very touching, and everyone stopped what they were doing to watch!

including Buddy

and then as I was standing watching too, Buddy jumped (like cats do) onto my back!! Of course he used his claws to hang on there!! And then climbed up onto my shoulder!! Here's an impromptu pic! He was having great fun, not concerned about my pain at all!! LOL

Hope you are all well!
Carole ;)

Buddy looks a little freaked out LOL! I really have to laugh at how you make a cat on your back sound like an every day thing Carole :)
Precious pics of the sheep, especially Love the nursing one.
I always get extra excited when I get a shot like that when we're out in the country.
What beautiful surroundings, your lamb makes me feel all warm and fuzzy!

Cute wee lamb, his fleece is just as unusual as his mom's... WOW Buddy has eyes like he's possessed - spooky. Let's hope that cold blast has passed and that we can return to the early warmth of spring :) Hugs Jx

Cute little lamb! Perhaps Buddy is jealous because he's not quite as cute?

i think they are both pretty tied for cuteness:)

I've misseda million of your posts! These are SWEET sheep photos. Love the black and white markings of the mum and lambkin. If you created sheep cards for sale, I would buy a pack!
