Wake Up Sheep Dog!

No, really, wake up! 

Look at what we got you!

This is the view out the back window of the truck on the drive home:

And here they are at their new home, thanks to the wonder of the internet. They are Dorper ewes - or possibly Dorper crosses. Dorpers are a breed of hair sheep that won't (hopefully) need shearing. Whitey was born in January and Blackey was born in March. They will have more original names, I promise - maybe after a naming contest with our friends who are visiting this weekend.

So far they have settled in pretty well. They're grazing...and grazing...and grazing some more. The aforementioned sheep dog has paid them zero attention so far.
