And now meet Doder (pronounced Due der}. Doder is my little clown. He is a year old and a whether. Early in the morning before the heat comes on you will see him and Tamarra running races in the big pasture. Tamarra always wins. But that's okay, he gets even. When she is laying down and chewing her cud he sneaks up on her and sits on her.(I really need to get a picture of that). He also gets behind her when shes eating and pushes her by her rear end as far as he can. You can tell just by looking at him he's full of mischief. Can you tell I spend a lot of time out in my sheep pens? It's amazing how each one has a different personality. I hear people say all the time that farm animals are dumb and all they are there for is to eat. I beg to differ.I really speak my mind when it comes to that. Cows, pigs, chickens, sheep and horses all have their own ways of going about their daily lives . They have their own way of having fun and their own way of telling you what they want and what they don't like. Basically like a dog does. You gotta love them all. That's it for tonight. big hansom dudes. (forgot to tell you, Doder is a Lincoln/Romney mix. He has really beautiful fiber)

He does sound like a character!

He has a very sweet face. Which I'm sure is just a disguise for his ornery self! LOL -- Yes, I totally agree about animals having their own personalities. That's why I love them all so much, and want to raise some of my own. I would be like you, and spend all of my time with them, just watching them, to learn about them individually. Thanks for introducing your flock to us. I look forward to seeing more of them. Take care, from hot and humid KY.
