Down On The Farm

This was the cheeky chappie that kept me busy yesterday, so apologies to Bloglanders for being so remiss in visiting your humble (or not!) abodes. Sammy Sheep is a one off - no chance of my creating a flock, should you be wondering.
If he passes his vet's inspection, he will be going to the lady who commissioned him; if he doesn't, at least there will be no danger of him ending up as a lamb chop.

P.S. A last minute addition:-

Sheepish Poem

Are you feeling sheepish,
blushing to your nose?
Perhaps the pink tinge travels
as far down as your toes?

This poor wee lamb is suffering
from exactly that affliction
his sheepish genes have made him
a blushing freak attraction!

  1. Does this mean Sammy can only have his wool trimmed with pinking shears?

  3. Sammy is Chenille rather than Chanel - how sweet and very touchable.

  4. When Martin has pinked him, will you rename him Shaun? (I'll get me coat)

  6. I especially like the slant rhyme in the second stanza. Sending you that Emily Dickinson poem must have had its effect.

    Sammy Sheep is nice, too.

  7. I love him! We'll give him a good home. We can't name him Shorn though because we already have one of those, and Bitzer and one of those crazy pigs... My husband's a bit obsessed. This will make an excellent gift for him. THANK YOU!!!

  8. Sammy is too cute. You are a wizzard with wool aren't you?

  9. RWP - I've read very few of Emily's poems, so I guess I've a few inbuilt genes of the same variety as hers since the day I was born...

  10. Haha! A blushing freak attraction, eh? Thanks for the laugh.

    He's very sweet in spite of the blush.

  11. LOve Lab=mb Chops, and bet he has a long and lovely life out of the frying pan because his owner will adore him/her.

  15. Aren't those old pictures almost too hard to believe sometimes. O.K., I won't comment on the horse in the tent. Love Sammy the Sheep! Great job on the poem!
