Angus

Angus is an adorable Shetland sheep we adopted from a friend who had to sell her flock. He joined us along with his Shetland friends Charlie, Ilse, Rose and Gilbert the California Red sheep. They are a happy little family. Gilbert and Charlie are trying to teach the others that treats are a good thing. So far they are not convinced! 

Angus is a beautiful silver color with black markings. He is almost 2 years old now and we are looking forward to a beautiful fleece next week!!! He is very close in markings and such with our Claire sheep. I also think Claire might have a little crush on Angus? (Angus is left picture, Claire right)

He is a sweet fellow and so far happy happy! 

2017 update coming soon!
Angus is a little sad right now. We had to put his Claire sheep to sleep earlier this summer. She lost too many teeth, because of that could not keep weight on properly. We miss her like crazy. He still keeps close to his Shetland family though. They've been helping cheer him up. He hangs around the most with Rose now. He's feeling better lately, did you know sheep grieve just like people do? 

Found another picture of Angus from last winter- love his face markings!! Sweet sheep!

Sinbad

Another beautiful llama who came to live with us along with his buddy Bull- the Shire horse! Sinbad is 2 years old and grew up with Bull and a few other horses. He has no idea he is a llama- he thinks he is a horse! He loves Bull the most but does 'protect' the others too- Chelsea and Cricket. He is hilarious! 

Sinbad's fleece is a beautiful black color that you don't see too often. There is very little guard hair in his fleece and what is present is also soft. I use his fleece in any project. It is gorgeous. Sinbad's fleece doesn't grow as long or thick as the other llamas so like Chaquita, we only shear him every other year. He gets the rest of the spa treatment on shearing day though! 

Sinbad is a very curious fellow, loves carrots and is VERY protective of his 'llamas' (horses). If they get upset about something he is immediately between them and the 'danger'. Oh Sinbad you silly horse, I mean llama! 

(When we sheared him this year we left him a cute red mane down the back of his neck-there, now you are a horse!)
