It was a pleasant day for a drive to pick up Gimli's friends!
It's a farm that specializes in Finn sheep.
Ram lamb bums!
And here they are! Gimli's new friends!
Some of the flock. They were all very friendly and came trotting up to give gentle nose sniffs.
Here is an Icelandic sheep.
When we got home my lady's friend Amy helped get Gimli up to the house. He did NOT want to walk up the hill so they put him in the cart!
He checked out the temporary living arrangements.
Hi new friends!
The lambs were more interested in eating grass.
Gimli isn't too happy.
The sheep are so quiet that Gimli takes some courage from their calmness. My lady named the little ewe Tuuli, which means "lively". The wee boy doesn't have a name yet. My lady told a friend that he should be named after a dwarf in the Hobbit...one called Balin, although she would spell it Baalin. Tee hee.
The lambs check out the huts.
Gimli says, "lady, I want to go back down to the barn".
We shall see how Gimli does for the rest of the afternoon.
