The Sheep are here!!!!

Coloured Sheep in Victoria
This afternoon while I was resealing the soon to be aquaponics tank Paul and Kelly arrived! I don't think the farmer was anticipating my excitement as I nearly knocked him of his feet! I carried Kelly and the farmer carried Paul up to the shed I had set up for them. They are bigger than I imagined and Paul is missing some male essentials but just adorable! They are very dark almost black you can't really tell in the photo.Paul is the bigger of the two and standing in front. I can't wait till tomorrow so I can get to know them a bit better!
I really hope Paul and Kelly enjoy their life here on Gobbler's Run. They will get to play with all the chooks and turkeys and eat marshmallows till they pop! I am fighting the urge to run up the back just to give them a hug!

Paul & Kelly look gorgeous ~ no wonder you are resisting the urge to run outside and cuddle them!!!!

Being so excited to have new critters living there is a really good sign. I think Paul and Kelly will have a great life with you and although they look a bit hesitant in the photo, I'm sure they'll soon be roaming all over and be the happy little sheep they should be. Is your mum doing anything with the fleece?

Kirsty said...

I have some big plans for mum and the fleece! I hope she won't mind! She loves to spin and I remember from my childhood the relaxing sound of the spinning wheel, even now when I hear someone spinning I feel warm, safe and happy!

They are lovely Kristy! I wish I had room for a couple of sheep - I love spinning, although it has been years since I gave away my spinning wheel. They will have the most lovely coloured fleece. I love that dark chocolate colour. Is Kelly a girl?

Kirsty said...

Yep Kelly is a girl! But Paul is only half a man....If I decide to have babies (sheep) I'll have to find a ram somewhere for Kelly to get to know;)

They are beautiful Kirsty, have they had their hug yet? :-)

Hi Kirsty,
I mailed your package today. I had to laugh about the marshmellows. If you scroll through my blog you will see the post where I show Miss Candi eating marshmallows. She eats them 2 x a day with her daddy.
Hugs,
