Lambs at School....

On Friday afternoon I loaded up three of my precious babies and made the one hour drive to visit the Elementary school attended by my three Grandsons.

I took 3 lambs: "White Night", because I figured the kids probably thought that lambs are supposed to be white and that they'd be interested to know that the baby rams have horns when they are very little ~ "Kat Nap", because she's so friendly and most kids have heard the term "black sheep" ~ and "Chance", because she is so obnoxiously incredibly friendly and I thought the children would be surprised to see a lamb with her markings.

Needless to say, the lambs were a big hit!

The children were incredibly well behaved (which could also be said for two of the three lambs that I took). Mr. White Night let it be quite clear that he was not thrilled to be away from his mom/on a halter/ and touched by humans!

Sweet Kat Nap and Chance even posed for pictures with the children!

Don't let his expression fool you ~ this little boy kept coming back for more!

I don't know who she is, but I think this little girl really NEEDS to raise Shetland sheep!

All in all, I'd say it was a very positive experience for children and lambs (OK ~ maybe not so much for White Night) alike.

Thank You Nick & Matt for inviting Grandma and her lambs to visit your school! I love you VERY much!!!

    Nick & Matt are so lucky to have you as their Grandmother. What a wonderful thing you did to bring your lambs to their school. As always, but I love the photos.Got my 'sheep fix' for the day. :-)

  2. Thank you, Diane! I always enjoy your visits....

  3. So amazing! My lambies would be more like White Knight, only probably even more obnoxious. I can't believe the little girls were so relaxed and happy with all the attention, out away from their moms! Beautiful.

  4. What lucky and darling children--lambs, too!

  5. thats awesome mom, what a great idea. i bet the kids went home and told thier parents all about it. great idea. i love you more
