Mayhem is our second bottle lamb for 2012. He is a beautiful Blue Face Leicester x lamb who is now Penny's best friend. He is an easy going lug of a sheep who I swear is just skipping through the ha field of life!
Mayhem and his best friend Penny have grown into 'real sheep' now. Mayhem still loves me and will come running just to see what I am going to do. He doesn't even care if I have treats with me.
His fleece is very curly, features 4 inch locks and is a beautiful silvery color. He is such an elegant sheep!
2016 update: I absolutely can NOT believe our Mayhem is going to be 5 in April?? Not long ago he was playing 'hide and seek' by running away from me, then 'hiding' all proud on top of a big round bale of hay. He is still great friends with Penny but I think he has a crush on Moon Pie. He follows her around all the time.
He is still a happy, clumsy sheep and shows the beautiful elegance of a Blue Face Leicester (cross) sheep. He also has a naughty habit. Bottle lambs are always beyond anxious to get hold of their meals aka bottles. When they are little, it's cute when they put their front legs up on you trying to reach. I am STILL working on breaking that habit? He still thinks it is ok to sit in my lap too. :0)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all from Mayhem!
Mayhem is adorable and still thinks he needs a bottle. Maybe we should pick up a pacifier for him? One with a big toothy grin on it? Oh wouldn't THAT be a picture!! He has agreed to wear a jacket this year to keep his fleece all clean! read more about coats...
Here is a photo of Mayhem's latest yarn- can't wait til spring! (And winter is just getting here)
