Shetland sheep have changed my life and touched my heart. They have brought me joy, adventure and serenity. Follow along as I live each day influenced by memories of my mighty flock of mini sheep ~ aided and abetted by "Bellamica", the English Shepherd,"Sable", my livestock guardian dog and "Hero" the rescue dog that stole my heart! You'll also meet many of the homeless dogs that I rescue and rehome as part of Bluff Country Canine Rescue.

Now girls, we're going to have some visitors this afternoon.
I'd like you to be on your BEST behavior.
They better bring cookies!
I'm not sharing my hay!
Did someone say COOKIES???
Oh, this is NOT going to be pretty!
I love the visual reference of the pigs with the sheep. You can see how tiny the Guinea Hogs are. Holly (the larger of the two, weighs 36 pounds and Ivy (yellow ear tag) weighs 30 pounds. They may be short, but they are plenty solid!
The sheep weren't actually 'chasing' the piglets, they were more curious. Of course, the piglets didn't know that and were afraid of the sheep. But the biggest scaredy cat of all was..
If the piglets so much as looked in his direction, he'd hightail it for the barn!
