Spring is for Lovers

Naturally, as Canadians, we inhabitants of the funny farm are fully in support of equality and liberty for all couples, including inter-species couples.  It seems, this spring, that a romance is blossoming between a certain sheep and a certain goat!

Here we have Tucker, the Woolly Bear of sheep, in all his Cotswold-Shetland glory.

And here we have Caramel, the 50% Nubian, 25% Alpine, 25% LaMancha goatie girl, in all her glory.

But what is this?!  Do I hear Tucker whispering sweet nothings into Caramel's tiny ear?  Look at her expression!  She is clearly entranced by his words of love!

Oh yes, there is a romance underway in this unlikely couple - the dainty elf-eared goat and the woolly "dark horse" on the farm!

See how she caresses him tenderly with her hoof?  She is such a tease!

I think he's kissing her neck!

He tells her of her stunning beauty, her fine aesthetic lines, her sweet little ears and her delicate colour.

She's fallen for him.  Nuzzling and resting her head on his warm, woolly back.  Oh Tucker, how long I have waited for you to notice me...

Don't worry - Tucker is a wether, so there won't be any geep (?) shoat (?) babies on the farm!  But it does seem that spring is in the air!

Hee hee. Too bad Tucker can't father any little 'uns or you'd have a famous Shoat on your farm. Weeeee!

And wouldn't that be a cute little shoat! All black curls and caramel coloured elf ears and perhaps a caramel coloured tail and feet. Awwww. :)

I'm loving your blog format. I tried to change mine and royally screwed it up! I can't even find my title anymore, even though it says it's still there. Any tips for me? Email me at springpeeperfarm@eastlink.ca
