Sheep Getting More Friendly

Last year the sheep were so shy I couldn't get anywhere near them, now when I go out to see them they flock around me. Jeepers got up close and personal in the above picture.

Azalea is the most friendly of all the lambs, she is an escape artist as well. It is not at all unusual to see her on the wrong side of the fence and eating off on her own, but when she sees me she comes running!

Avalon is still quite shy, she gets it from her mother Kia. Ava only comes round as part of the rest of the flock, never by herself.

Kia will eat a bit of grain from my hand but she still doesn't fully trust me. I still think she has a little Icelandic Leader Sheep in her, she is very wary and intelligent.

It seems the sheep have been keeping a close eye on me lately, I really enjoy it when the run up to greet me!


  1. I can relate to that! I thought it was always so much fun when they would come up and greet me!

    I hope you have a great Sunday!

  2. Nice to know they are trusting you now. Of course, it was probably easier to walk when they didn't! ;-)

  3. Debbie - I love how different they all are.

    Leontien - It really brings me a lot of joy to have them flock to me!

    Teresa - The sheep will ALWAYS be easier to navigate around when compared to the goats!
