Happy Nimbus!

I have two sheep that I keep as pets...not livestock. I have a ram and a ewe. The ram, named Nimbus, is a doll! He loves to cuddle and he is always smiling!

Thats great that you have sheep as pets! They are lucky sheep

Nimbus actually likes to cuddle? Thats awesome!

Thanks for sharing your photo, hope to see more someday!

Yup, he does like to cuddle! LOL I never thought sheep could be affectionate, but when he sees me he comes running up to me, looks up, and rests his head against my tummy. I rub his cheeks and his eyes close. He also will stand still while I give him big bear hugs. He is a lovebug! I just love digging my fingers in that plush wool so it's a good thing that he has no issues with me petting him!

I had a Suffolk ram in my teens, he loved me to death.
He would attack any male human in the pen with me though.
I think he thought of me as his ewe.

Is Nimbus a Southdown?

Yes, Arlyn, he is a Southdown! I'm impressed! Before I got mine I didn't even know there were different varieties! Both of them were runts that were about to be left for dead, but hubby and I brought them home and they have become such fun pets!
Nimbus isn't very "rammy" yet...although my ewe, Cirrus, will give my dog quite a chase!

Aww bless you for rescuing them.

I have always wanted Southdowns, maybe someday I'll have a house with a big yard
They are just so cute and cherubic being so small compared to other sheep.

OMG! I love him! Look at that face!

You know, it was petting a baby lamb that made me vegetarian. Two years ago, never looked back.
