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!
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!
