Suddenly Merricat seems to have grown from a lamb into a sheep. She is a year old now and you can see it in her long face. It’s hard to remember exactly what she looked like when she came to the farm last fall or even a few months ago, without looking at pictures. But she did look more like Robin. Soft and round, her features less defined. (click here to see a picture or Merricat in March)
When I saw her locks hanging over her eyes I immediately thought of Rosemary.
Merricat’s wool is different than Rosemary’s which was tight ringlets, and Merricat is more friendly, less skittish. I don’t think Rosemary ever really got over the year or so she was neglected before we got her. She was always a little wary of people.
Looking at this photo, I thought it was like one of the glamour photos that people get taken of themselves. A studio portrait.
But it’s really just a setting on my iPhone and Merricat’s willingness to look at my camera.
