Day 133: Friends

by Ivan Steenkamp May. 25, 2017 1078 views


Ever since the day that we received a lamb as a gift from a friend we have enjoyed him in many different ways. (Not as a meal though! Probably never...)

Flymo - he got that name to suite his job which is keeping the grass short - was a really frightened little lamb for the first couple of weeks of his life with us. Our kindness quickly won him over to our side though. After spending about four or five months with us he is very friendly towards us. He has become so tame that he even eats out of the hand of the person on feeding duty! Whenever I go to feed the sheep — we got more sheep after Flymo— he runs up to me and nudges me for the pellets. He is my favourite sheep by far!

My brother and I went to feed the sheep and after he was finished eating he came over to look for more food! I got my brother to pat him before we left the sheep to themselves.

Flymo has grown quite a bit. Here is an earlier post I did of him when he was younger: Day 9: Flymo

I guess I do not need to add the metadata anymore after the blog platform update (BTW click on EXIF to view the shooting info).

Beautiful!  The texture of Flymo's wool really comes through in your picture.
