Early morning surprizes

I looked out the window and counted the sheep as I sipped a cup of hot tea this morning. 1,2,3,...9,10, 11. Okay all the adults accounted for. Babies, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Six! Black Beulah had a pretty little black lamb some time between dark and breakfast time.

So far this year all of the lambs are black with varying degrees of white on their heads. Zarah's twins have been dubbed: Stinky and Flower by my friend, Jessica's children. It fits these two are always up to mischief.

They will wait until Yeti, the biggest of the highland cows, has her head down eating. In that moment when she isn't paying attention Stinky or Flower will butt her on the head then they both run like crazy to hide behind their mommy.

They really are little stinkers!
