Yorkshire


I had never really thought much about sheep, until we visited Yorkshire one summer.  The field behind the house we rented for a week had a small flock of sheep, we could see them and hear them.  The surrounding hillsides were teaming with the cute little fuzzy creatures.  They are soft and fuzzy and for the most part quite contented.  We fell in love with them. If they had better manners I would keep a flock of them in the living room.  But their biological needs are incomparable with high rise living, so we make due with acrylic sheep.  The flock keeps the carpet flowers mowed down.  They are quiet, soft and fuzzy, but not as warm and cuddly as their farmyard friends.  

If they could be housebroken, what would you keep a flock or herd of in your living room? 

A quick personal note: I am in Florida for a few days.  Hospice urged calling in the family, mom is not doing well.  The Travel Penguin will update with scheduled posts, but I may not offer as many comments as usual.  I am reading, my daily dozen blogs keep me connected.

  1. I'm very sorry to hear about your mother and wish you the best in coping with these difficult times. Mere words seem inadequate but my thoughts are with you.

    I'd like to have a herd of sheep on my two acres, but with all the weeds I'd probably do better with some goats.
