I don’t always get to see these four sheep standing together. Suzy and Socks are two of my original three sheep (Tess was the third, she was Socks Mother and died some years ago)I got them when we still lived at Old Bedlam Farm ten years ago. Liam and Pumpkin are their lambs, now seven-year-old wethers.
Socks’ and Pumpkin’s wool isn’t long enough to shear. Their wool isn’t growing as quickly as it used to. But I’ll be shearing Suzy and Liam.
It’s kind of sweet seeing these four together.
