Do you like sheeps? Of course you do. Who doesn’t like soft, floofy sheeps?

2.0 and I spent last Saturday at Ironwood Farm. Perfect timing, given that I have a three day course at work this week that might actually kill me. We haven’t been to the farm in about a year – which is probably too long to go without rubbing a sheep’s head.

Heatherjay and Rupert were the perfect hosts. We toured about the farm catching up on the news, picked some berries, had a wonderful lunch and then took in the views from a side of the property we hadn’t seen before. It’s a most spectacular place. They have about a dozen young sheep now (on top of about a dozen adults), including a baby ram lamb. I’m not going to lie to you – the baby ram lamb was a real highlight. His level of cuteness was unmeasurable by normal standards of cute. Off. The. Chart.

Heatherjay has got to be the world’s best shepherd. Chin rubs? Come on! If it weren’t for the bugs, I’d seriously consider moving in with the sheep. Plus, she makes great pie, so 2.0 would probably come live there too. (FYI, Heatherjay says she’s going to share her pie crust recipe with me/us.)

So, given that my week is so busy, I thought you might enjoy a few pictures. Of sheep. Lots of sheep. But I’ve got pictures of other stuff too. I’ll share ’em with you soon.

    Ok, I think I have to lie down now.

      I know, right? I should have brought baby ram lamb home with us. He would fit right beside me in the bed…

    It looks more like we have a herd of goats now that the shearer has come and gone. But what a pile of lovely fleeces I have! Lovely photos – thanks for making us look so good. xo hj
