We now have 3 sheep (Quality, Buffy and Breeze) eating from our hands, and another 2 (Snowy and Cora) who are desperate too but not quite brave enough yet.  Reva and Cassie are a bit more shy, but still come very close.  They are lovely.

That's just brilliant :)   The others won't be long, I bet. 

Any amount of pictures isn't too many ;)  :eyelashes: :innocent:

Love that photo of the two lads with their buckets. :)

I love that picture too - reminds me of my own happy childhood days.  It's worth trimming and framing it and keep it til they're teenagers and think they hate eachother  8).

I'm so glad everything's working out well with your lovely new flock  :thumbsup:
