Kitty said...

Oh how exciting! Are you going to name them all once you've got to know them?

Q: What do you call a sheep on a trampoline.
A: A woolly jumper

One of my kids' silly jokes.

Good luck! :-) x

how exciting... hope it all goes well tommorrow.... I love reading about your growing family of animals.. you'll be like my old college friend's mum who had lots of animals (sheep too). i once saw her shopping list pinned up in the house.. after listing all the things needed for the animals .. way down at the bottom in small writing was ' food for the family'. it made me laugh.
Enjoy this weekend and please post lots of photos...

Oh Tracey.....I'm excited for you.....I can't wait to see the pics.....I am pleased the Tallula was ok for you.
It's so worrying with our animals as they can't tell you what is wrong...better to be on the safe side .I often think the smell of the vets is enough to cure them,before old vetty sticks a needle in them or a thermometer up their bums !!!!!
Pity that animals don't have an NHS.

I am going up to bed with an image of your randy sheep Boris !!!!!!!
Ha .......

Just thought I'd share this little sheepy-tidbit... My parents' neighbors raise sheep, and the area they live in has a big coyote problem. To alleviate the problem, the neighbors also have llamas. Apparently coyotes are afraid of llamas, who in turn, protect the sheep! Rather sweet, really. =)

What an exhausting, fabulous day this is going to be....I hope the sea is flat and the weather fair to bring your girls home.
