    His mum rejected him J&Z

    There is a small flock of Welsh blacks at work, his mum had his twin early morning. He didnt follow till hours later and she just wouldnt accept him. Nobody expected him to survive i was determined and im so glad he fought and did as just cant bear the thought of anything happening to him. He does not however realise he is a sheep. He is a dog in his mind having spent the 1st 7 weeks of his life living in the house with us and the dogs. He still now doesnt acknowledge sheep but gets so excited when he sees or hears a dog :D:rolleyes:

    Jessey i spent a small fortune on making my field Tigger proof, i love sheep and find working with them very rewarding but he has definitely cost alot of money, not 1p is begrudged though :p id highly recommend sheep to anyone who has time and a place for them, time being important as the difference in them when handled and having time spent with them makes a huge difference. Even the stockman said he had never noticed just what large characters they have till Tigger but i spend time with the flock at work often and they really are alot of fun to be around :)

    Love him. Must admit, it had never occurred to me to have a sheep as a pet, but he is obviously such a little character and you are clearly very attached to him, so there must be something to be said for it :D Great name too!

    Dom and I have been watching This Farming Life and I did say that whilst I'm not a huge fan of sheep, that I reckoned if I had to hand-rear a teeny lamb, that I'd get quite attached to it. You are living proof of this, MM!!!

    Thank you guys, Bodshi and Domane i am terribly attached to him, i have even been suprised at just how attatched i have become. I honestly never expected him to be such a wonderful little friend but thats what he is to me, he is genuinely so happy to see me and loves just being with you :)
