They are big sheep now....

 Remember Penny (left) and Mayhem?? Such tiny little bottle lambs we adopted from a friend's flock in early Spring. Penny lived in the house with us until Mayhem came along. I cried and cried the day I put her outside with Mayhem to start being a 'big sheep'...

This is a picture of them when they were still little, waiting for me on the back porch. Penny did not (still does  not) understand why she can't come back in and romp around the house! 

And this is today. They moved in with the big sheep group about a month ago. Can you see them waaay out there? Upper left hand side of the picture you see my two 'big sheep'. They are going through the 'woo hoo I am free and don't need you any more Mom' phase. More tears on my part but so glad they are happy, well adjusted sheeps. (tee hee) They'll grow out of the freedom phase in a few weeks and be back trying to sit in my lap, seeing if I have bottles for them and trying to scoot out the gate every time it is opened! Not much is sweeter than lambs romping in the house- would do it again in a heart beat.... :0)
