This is Reno my Merino sheep. Life on a farm is sweet! Especially when you get to share it with family. This is my little grandson. Flashback six years ago, he is feeding my lamb Reno. I love this picture, it is one of my favorites.
Reno is a Merino sheep. She started out black, but her wool has faded in the sun and she gets lighter as she gets older. I just love her, she is so sweet.
She was raised with an Icelandic sheep and five Boer goats. I fed them all on a bottle so they saw me as a mom. They were all so cute and so much fun, but Reno was my favorite. I liked to turn them out of their pen to take a walk. They would follow me everywhere I went. I would walk to our creek that is on the edge of our farm.
Reno was so funny as I walked. For some reason, she liked to walk on the trail right in front of me. She would walk really slow because she didn’t know where we were going. I would have to pass her and pretty soon she would be right back in front of me.
The little goats would run beside us and play.
Now Reno has grown up. My sheep Shearer says she is a little bit to well fed. She’s not fat just fluffy. She has a really deep voice when she Baas. She talks to me every time I am out there. She loves her back rubbed and she loves animal crackers.
I hope you enjoy the story of Reno. You can find more fun pictures of her in the book “Slippers for Hannah.”
I hope you enjoy my blog post. I love to hear your comments and experiences with your fun animals.
