Lots of Sheepy Cuteness

Remember these sheep at my nieces' farm? Now there are more! Look at this little face!
Her name is Penny. Here she is with her mom, Olivia.
That's a polar fleece lamby coat she is wearing. These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago. She was only 12 hours old in these pictures.
Last week, the stork brought another little lamby to the farm. This is Patty.
Here she is with Olivia...or maybe that's Bob. I'm not sure.

The sheep shearer was at the farm, and here he is working on Patty's mom, Melanie.

Olivia was already done, and looked on in sympathy.

Little Penny got as far away from the shearing as she could. She thought that standing in the food bowl was a good idea.

Here is Melanie, much happier now that the shearing was over. Patty says "You're so pretty, mommy!"

They are so cute. Baby animals are one of the best parts of Spring.

What a cutie! I always feel sorry for the shorn sheep. They look so forlorn. But not sorry enough to give up knitting with wool.

For some reason, Patty just REALLY is so much cuter to me... Not that I'd turn any of them down...

omg - so adorable! That first baby is just precious. Doesn't get much cuter than baby animals in spring, does it?

I am really partial to the black sheep...I don't know why (tee hee). They are all so precious.

Penny is all sweet and fuzzy (she's got like this old man beard look going on, poor thing) and Patty is just wild - bouncing all over the place and off on her own. Bob's still a favorite though. They're good babies...

PS- Nichole, visit whenever :)
