The sheep have arrived!

Today we got sheep (older lambs, really) at the Village! Three little guys of unknown heritage (I'll have to do some research) -- they are mostly white with black faces (with white splotches) and black feet (with white splotches) and have horns. Michael & I sat in the pen for a while trying to make friends with them. A little timid at first, but a handful of sheep kibble helped break the ice. One was definitely more piggy than the others! Another one is definitely more fiesty, initiating several head-butts to her buddies. They are currently being pastured in the orchard, which is enclosed. These are the first farm animals, other than chickens, to live there for decades. It's so exciting!

I'd like to go on record as demanding some pictures of the sheep! :)
