Are they keepers?

This is all about Nutmeg and Sweet Woodruff ------ aka. Meggy and Ruffy. They are about three and a half months old now.

This is specificaly a "Shetland" post. I need help in evaluating my only lambs from last spring. If you are a "Shetland person", please leave a comment and tell me truthfully about these two youngsters. I am a big (read "old") girl, and I can take the truth. I will still love them very much because they are mine and because they are so darn cute.

This is what Ruffy's horns look like now. Is there hope for them and him?

These are rear views. I know they are not great photos, but I tried.

Please leave a comment and tell me what you think because I just don't get around any other Shetland people, and I don't know enough to make any kind of intelligent judgement.

In honor of Queen Anne (whoever she was)

What we see on our daily walks in August:

This is the four of us that often go for walks together. I never knew that cats would walk along for such a trip. It is just over a mile. They are usually behind us, and sometimes they do get a ride. It is funny to see them pant. I never knew that cats would do that either.

The Queen Anne's Lace is so abundant this year. It makes our walks so special. It is a great place to photograph the dogs and the cats.


And then there is the alalfa. The smell of it in bloom is heavenly. The dogs look so lovely when they decide to run into the field. We all went in this afternoon and took some pictures, even the kitties.
