The arrival of 2 Valais Black Nosed ewe lambs

Friday, 1 January 2016

On Christmas Day (2016) I had the surprise of my life... the arrival of 2 Valais Black Nosed ewe lambs!  I had always dreamt of these sheep (sad, I know) ever since I saw a picture of them on Facebook a few years ago with the caption "World's cutest sheep".  They certainly earn that title... even more so when you see them in the flesh.

I have named them Mia and Nea, Swiss for "Beloved Twin"... thought it appropriate since they are twin sisters.  They arrived on the farm on Christmas night all white and fluffy however after a few weeks of living here they are a bit more tatty... albeit still very cute.
