||Four years old|
my pet sheep named Lamby Pie. I have had him for about four years
now. Lamby Pie was a surprise Easter gift from my husband. He was an
orphan rescued from a local farm auction in which he would have been
sold to be someone's dinner! He was brought home and lived in the garage
for a brief time until he was old enough to live outside on his own. We
fenced in our back yard for him to live in and my husband built him a
small house for shelter. Of course he doesn't spend a lot of time in his
house, he would rather lay in the mud beside it.
I wouldn't call him your typical sheep. He loves to follow you around
and play hide and seek. Watching him run is the funniest thing! He runs
and hops like a bunny when he wants to play. He loves eating birdseed
and licking sap off the trees in the yard. Lamby Pie acts more like a
dog then a sheep. He gets sheared once a year. He looks so funny after
he gets sheared, it's like a totally different animal. And after he is
sheared you see how fat he really is! So that's my Lamby Pie, he may not
be a lap pet, but he is loved all the same.
