Theo is our Marshall sheep's little brother. Theo is Greek for 'gift from God' and that is exactly how we think of him.... He loves his big brother Marshall. They are always scampering around and playing any time someone starts up a game of tag!!
He is a white Corriedale sheep with a bouncy fleece, locks average 3 to 4 inches long and it is Merino soft. As perfect as the sheep that grows that fleece right? :0)
2018 update! Theo is getting a bit older. He is 14 years old now. Whoa! He had trouble keeping weight on last winter so he's living in the special needs group now. He's officially retired so he has grain, pasture and good hay if needed. So far grass has been great in the pastures- fingers crossed it will continue! We just got a box of roving back from Shari. Theo's fiber is home! She blended it side by side with silk- ooh la la!
The sheep love mowing our lawn. They do a much better job than I do with the push mower. Thank you to my sheep!
