Becan - This little Shetland baby came to us from a friend's flock. He had a ligament problem in his hind leg that healed very quickly.... He loves to be held and snuggled.......his name is Irish and in Gaelic it means 'a little one'- very fitting for this tiny, tiny guy! He really thinks he is a dog, he loves to sit in your lap (still!) and loves to take naps with me when I bring a blanket and a book to the pasture on a sunny day! Snuggly sheep are the bestest!
He has a single coated Shetland with auburn fiber. It is SO next to the skin soft, with locks of 3 inches.
When he looks at me I am convince he knows exactly what I am saying- like there is an 'old soul' in there somewhere?
2017 update: Becan is getting to be an older gentleman and isn't afraid who knows it! He'll be spending the winter with our special needs/retiree sheep group so he can keep his weight on properly. I really can't believe he is 12 years old now. Sigh. His best friend is Charlie, another little Shetland who looks like he could be Becan's twin- only much younger. Charlie is only 2.
