Sheep In A Sweatshirt

You've probably heard of a "pig in a blanket" but have you ever seen a "sheep in a sweatshirt?" Emma was sheared on November 1st. Look at those big floppy ears and long legs! It's always a surprise to see what a sheep or goat really looks like after all the fleece has been removed. We put a sweatshirt on her because it was a little cool after the shearing and now she has to get used to not having a wooly coat for a while. I'll probably remove her sweatshirt in about 2 weeks. Emma doesn't seem to mind wearing her sweatshirt at all! It is a little big for her and it keeps riding up her back, so I just keep pulling it down!
After her shearing and on the way back to her pen, Emma had a little temper tantrum and threw herself down on the ground. No one could get her to stand up; she just kept flopping down and laying on the ground, so my son and Liz's husband, Al, had to pick her up and carry her the rest of the way down to the pen. Hmm! Just like a little toddler who can't have her way!
Unfortunately I have been traveling a lot and was not there to see her first haircut, but my friend Liz took lots of pictures. Due to a technical problem, I have not gotten them yet but I promise I will post them when they arrive!

Kris, how adorable!! And yes, it's strange to see what Emma looks like without her fleece to keep her warm. But a sweatshirt? What a neat idea.

Good Morning, Kris ~ Baby Emma has a more grown up look without her curly coat ~ do you notice that? She looks like a toddler, maybe!! Still cute, no matter what!
