Well, it's not little but he sure is cute! We went to pick him out from the 4-H club lambs last night. Jared will raise him, train him and then show him in the spring. He's 3 month old black faced crossbreed wether.
We were told to look for a straight back and pegged legs. I think he looks pretty good but what do I know? We don't know anything about sheep. No matter what, this will be a good first experience with showing and will also be a good test to see if sheep are an animal that our family enjoys. Wayne has been talking about starting a small flock.
Right now J is trying to get him to come to him for food or petting. He's going to have to spend lots of time out there!
I think he is wondering, "What kind of sheep are those?" and "Where is my momma?"
To entice him, J placed food on top of the spool
and is waiting patiently (or impatiently)
while he tries to think of a cartoon character name that fits his lamb.
