It’s photos like this one that says so much about the different personalities of my sheep.
Suzy has always been unafraid and friendly. She is one of my first sheep along with Socks. She’s 11 years old and has slowed down a bit, but other than needing some grain in the winter to keep her healthy she looks really good for her age.
Kim is a few years younger and has always been shy and skittish. It’s only in the past two or three years that she will take a snack from my hand. She runs from Zinnia, which only makes Zinnia want to chase her more.
And as she’s doing in this picture, Kim often hide behind the other sheep. Which is actually a very smart way for a sheep to stay safe.
