The Black Sheep

There is one in every family, we call ours Squirrelly Shirley. She is, um, interesting. She would stand out in the crowd even on a normal day, yet she always feels the need to accessorize her goth look to the extreme. Sometimes it is a limb piercing her wool making her look like she’s wearing a wide load sign across her behind.

This week it is dreadlocks. It wouldn’t be so bad if she weren’t crazy. She is the least touchable animal on the farm. Helping her remove her accessories proves challenging; she trusts no one.

If she ever got out for a night on the town she’d come home with a dragon tattoo, I just know it.

Hilarious! I just adore sheep. A friend of mine has some for 'pets' and they can be the funniest little creatures. :)

Well, you can't blame her untouchableness on her mother - she was an "underfooter"!

That is so funny. We have one chicken who is a very independent girl like that. She flies out of the chicken yard every morning while I leave the others locked in until it's a little lighter outside. When I go back out, she screams at me as if I was the one who locked her out. Gotta love the eccentric ones.

But what a lovely black fleece she has. And she has a snack for later if she can reach it.
