December 2007 pics of the Geeps - Geese + Sheep
Use the purple Critters link in the left panel to return to the index.
Just a few pics of the view from our door.
|Sheep heading for the barn and their breakfast.|
|Top Goose and his harem of two enjoy their breakfast. Top Goose is the gray one.|
|One of the ladies enjoying a treat at the base of the house steps.
They had just been playing in the puddles (this is one of the shallower
ones) and I gave them some leftover peas and popcorn.
By the way, do you know the never-fail way to summon geese?
Be sure to drop your "aiches" and they'll come running every time!
|At 8-1/2 years old, Jackie is our eldest sheep and our only Barbados Blackbelly. She's not the herd matron, and sometimes doesn't even hang out with the others. She was raised in a petting zoo, so she's very friendly towards people - especially if you have grain..|
|This is Jack, Jackie's 5 month-old ram lamb. He has even less of a flocking instinct than Jackie and often strays far from the herd. However, when he gets scared, he'll run to either the other sheep or to the geese.|
|Another geep picture. The sheep are Opal (6 years old and the matron), Mammy's 5-month-old ram lamb, Milky, and Mammy. They're standing in front of their shelter/hay station.|
|More geeps. The ram lying down behind the geese is Prince, the main man. He is very protective of the herd.|
