My Wether Pumpkin

Pumpkin was resting his head on Liam’s back in the pole barn this morning.

Pumpkin was born four years ago to my Border Leicester, Socks.  His wool had lightened over the years. It started out as dark as Sock’s  deep brown wool and is now a rich gray.  His father was a white Cheviot named Tim.

Pumpkin isn’t as dominant as Liam, our other wether  (a wether is a castrated male sheep), although I do see them bumping head sometimes.

Pumpkin has a very soft and distinctive “baa”.  It’s almost as if he’s whispering.
