The Ladies

ophelia.JPG

A lady with a large appetite and flare for the dramatic.  Very athletic, almost goatlike in her love for climbing. 

Top Milker & Drama Queen

Ophelia

Has a habit of slurping her water in a rather loud manner.  Unique coloring and easy to milk.

Slurper

Portia

ivy_edited.jpg

A sheep with the most expressive eyes--either looks surprised or pleading.  Always has the scruffiest wool. Daughter of Esme.

Ready for Anything

Ivy

IMG_1358_edited.jpg

She looks cute and sweet but she'll try to jump into the milk cooling room if you aren't looking.

Cute & Naughty

Cleo

andromeda_edited.jpg

Daughter of Ophelia .  A friendly girl, loves her head scratched.  Always the biggest voice.  Often spotted with a wreath of hay round her neck.  Performs a dance of impatience to get into the milking parlor.  Wags her tail when she gets a meal.

Boisterous & Affectionate

Andromeda

cypress_edited.jpg

An attentive mama, but never lets anyone get in the way of her food.  She has the belly to show for it.  Can't stand to wait for anything.

Impatient & Pushy

Cypress

The only relaxed lady in the herd.  Has triplets every year.  Reliable and quiet demeanor.

Calm and Steady

Esmeralda (Esme)

desie.HEIC

Patiently waits her turn to be milked and then first thing she does on the milking stand is kick.

Kicker

Desdemona (Desie)

persephone.HEIC

First year lambing and milking.   A quick learner. Usually seen hanging out with Cleo.

Newbie

Persephone

aphrodite_edited.jpg

New to the milking scene.  Terrified of being alone.  Needs a bit of extra assistance.

Untrusting & Distraught

Aphrodite (Dite)

viola_edited.jpg

Rarely out front in the herd and rather shy, but never has any problems.   Strong and self-reliant.

Hangs in the Back

Viola

If there is a fight, usually Orchid is involved.  But she loves a good head rub. Sister of Cypress.

Feisty

Orchid

Support Staff

Benny

The lurker.  He'll stare you down and follow, but never wants to be touched.  He's our resident weirdo.   Usually can be found wandering around the yard as our lawncare specialist.

Rosie

An affectionate, curious, lovely lady who loves to rub noses.  Pasture greeter and herd protector (she will not let a dog near the pasture).  Always ready to protect the lambs against an intruder.

Percival

A handsome gentleman.  Rosie's son.  Generally never more than a foot away from her.  Still learning to trust like his mama.

Cesar

The Ram

The noble and mighty Cesar.  Father of 24 lambs this season.  A goofy oaf who loves a good head scratch, but like most good rams, he'll turn on a dime and attack.

Felix

The Dog

An excitable, happy man.  Really wants to help herd everyone else on the farm, but doesn't really have the technique down.  Equally happy tearing around the pasture as he is passed out on the couch snuggling with one of his favorite humans.
