Bandito is Nigerian Dwarf and Pygmy mix. He has sired many however is now retired and spending the rest of his days with his two female companions and two kids.
This evening we took advantage of the nice weather before the cold front hits tomorrow. We sat out on the back porch among our animals. Well all except for the fowl. Here are a few pictures we took tonight of our spoiled animals.

The next pictures are very special to me. In February of this year we were asked to help bottle feed a lamb who's mom was down. Well we are the type of people that will do what we can for any animal. So not only did we bottle feed the lamb but Harriet was able to bring the ewe back from the brink of death. No exaggeration! At one time all bowel sounds had stopped and she was blind. Harriet worked with her tirelessly and now she is ours as she lost her leg and they could no longer breed her. It was one of the best gifts I have ever received. Having these two Barbado Sheep has been a joy and a blessing. They are such beautiful gentle creatures. They are my babies.
