A New Herd



Hi Friend,
I love Sheep (who doesn't, so cute and fluffy.) I found and awesome shop on Etsy, Armadillo Dreams, that sells all sorts of wooden barn animals, and I had to buy these 2 little guys. All I did was wrap them with yarn and now Baby B has a herd of her own. I will be adding to her barn yard friends for sure.

Here is a little "sheepish" knowledge, according to wiki:
Use of the word sheep began in Middle English as a derivation of the Old English word scēap; it is both the singular and plural name for the animal. A group of sheep is called a flock, herd or mob. Adult female sheep are referred to as ewes, intact males as rams or occasionally tups, castrated males as wethers, and younger sheep as lambs. Many other specific terms for the various life stages of sheep exist, generally related to lambing, shearing, and age.
