This is Angelina, she is very shy, and only goes outside when Angus gets behind her and pushes her out. The pigs and the sheep share a meadow and sleep in the quonset hut. Yesterday our Amish neighbor came over and sheared the sheep. The pigs were so upset, squeeling and barking. Angus stayed right next to my husband and Angelina stayed right outside the door.

This is Angus, he is a sweet fella, loves to "talk" to us, and loves chocolate donuts.

After all was said and done, the shearing tools were packed up and the wool weighed, the pigs and sheep shared a dozen bananas. A good time was had by all.


Here are before and after photos of our sheep.

Somehow the before and after photos got switched around, but you get the idea.

Together they had 18 pounds of wool removed.

This is what Big Dot looked like before our Amish neighbor sheared her.....Wooly and smelly...

They look cold, wonder if they would wear sweaters?
