They have apparently gotten to the age where they do not need to be Velcro-ed to their mothers side at all hours of the day - I'm sure the mom's are grateful! Harriet and Nellie have spread their tiny hoofs and taken to finding every possible way to escape the paddock. They've been climbing between the fence rails closest to the barn for a few weeks and up-till-now it's been really cute. They would come out and eat some of the chicken scratch and scamper right back in to their freaked-out mothers who stood baaaaaaing on the other side of the fence. Their older brother and favorite playmate Freddy is too big to fit through the fence so he has been left out of the fun.

The mommas are looking a little less like they got run over by the lawn mower so I am just a tiny bit less embarrassed by their spectacular haircuts! Mr. Sheepie is still sporting his winter coat - I feel so bad but I have not been able to get a hold of the sheep shearer and I am quite sure we would get injured trying to shear him ourselves. He hasn't been nearly as friendly since shearing the momma's - I think he knows eventually his turn will come.
