This handsome little guy is Barnabus, a six-month old Shetland wether. He and Duke are the charter members of the newly established Boys’ Club. Duke, having apparently Done his Duty for the year, was getting pretty frustrated and started being much too rough with the ewes. His aggressive behavior escalated to the point that he suddenly found himself kicked out of the ewe pen. (A very relieved Princess has issued a royal decree that the original Sheep Clubhouse is now to be known as Girls’ Club HQ, no boys allowed!)
Barnabus and Duke are going to live in their own special bachelor pad on the other side of the field from the girls. And next spring I’ll hopefully have a lovely chocolate fleece from Barnabus!
