Siobain, stunning pictures of Calico and Billy! Two very special "kids"! :clap: :clap:

Okie! How can you say those Lambs are not pets? They are awesome and I would love to feed them every four hours just as much as you do! :dance: :dance:

As for their dad sitting on his bum, I think he can afford to sit and watch them the whole day! :lol: :lol:

And don't think that to be ridiculous or impossible . Some of you may remember the pic of his father that I posted some time ago , but in any event , here it is again :

Mr Sheep senior likes to sit on his bum ( like a dog ) watching over his flock , so maybe the son can do the same ? :hmz:

As I said , he is doing well , and so far can already say " Baah " , but hopefully , with some extra effort , I can train him to say " Bark " instead :wink:


:funny: :funny:

Jeanni that is how it goes. The saying “ Goosey Goosey Fat and Juicy” is very appropriate when a goose is being eyed by the humans on the farm as Christmas draws closer.

Thank you Siobain for showing us pictures of Calico and Billy.

You can also not eat anything that you have named! Okie, do your lambs have names?

I don't make a habit of naming them , but on the other hand , I don't have any problem in calling them something like " Lamb-chops " , " Vet-pensie " ( Fat-belly ) , " Potjie-pensie " ( Pot-belly ) , Ribbitjies" , etc .

Attack me if you wish , but just keep in mind , I do not kill babies , and as such I do not eat veal :)
By the same token , I do not kill ( baby ) lambs for their meat :naughty:
I love my meat , and I love my animals and treat them well , and I do not send them to abbatoirs to be mistreated prior to being killed and butchered :twisted:
Where do you buy your meat , and what process does it undergo before it lands on your table :naughty: :)
