Tess Fooled Us All


Tess was offended that I would even talk about her size on my blog. She pointed out that she didn't blog about my size. She has a point there. I risked having her avoid me. I offended her and now I can't get anywhere near her. Uh- Nobody can. Tess is the most skiddish of our sheep. She has no need for humans, so having her ignore me or run away from me means "business as usual".

Tess delivered one tiny baby on February 4th. I had two people who had the date right, but she fooled all of us by having only one. She looks like she's hiding several. Let me show you the baby.

I love the coloring!

The lamb has a patch around each eye.

Everyone else was anxious to see  the newcomer.

This is the first mama, twins, and dad. The twins bounce everywhere, with their feet seldom touching the ground. We joke that they just walk on air.

I know this photo is ridiculously out of focus, but you can still see how they run above the ground. They move very fast, but mom kind of moseys around. The blur is courtesy of my point and shoot camera. When I borrow a DSLR camera from one of my two photographer daughters, I end up taking a gazillion pictures . I'm so used to taking lots of shots to get one good one, that their fancy cameras make it even easier to fill a media card. Sorry girls. Can I use your camera again soon? Pleeeeeez?

    Fancy cameras are nice they will let you borrow it I am sure. But I think your photos are great.

  4. I love it. The little lamb is precious. Looks like it could be a contender for a mascot for a rural fire department!

  5. Such cute baby! You should name it ELSIE (if it's a girl). It looks like, shall I say, "Mooey!" I hated my point & shoots too, but DSLRs are so pricey. For our anniversary & my birthday (they're 2 weeks apart) the Man bought me a Cannon Power Shot SX50HS. If you leave it on manual it's just your usual point & shoot (with better focus), but it has tons of settings like a DSLR & you can go totally manual. All for about a $100.00 more than a decent point & shoot. I am loving it so far...The Girl (who wants to go to college for photo/multi media journalism) loved it so much she wanted one (& daddy got her one) for Christmas. Both of our pictures have improved dramatically :O)

  6. Tess's daughter (or is it a son?) is incredibly cute!
    One time Mr. Dreamy & I watched lamb jumping beans for at least an hour. They were so funny. I love the way they move....walking one minute and then bounding into the air as if bitten by a flea.
