Chloe the Connemara is the most gentle soul who has the look of John about her, it’s the expressions on her face, her kindness and her soft eyes that remind me, rather than her physical features – John was a Thoroughbred after all. They both share the same mannerisms, even down to trying to nibble my bum when I’m picking out front feet.
Freda the sheep? Well what can I say, who knew sheep were such characters? She is cheeky, inquisitive, shy yet overpoweringly nosey so her shyness gets forgotten as she simply has to see what’s going on at all times! She is quite a girl.
The two of them get on fine, they even share haynets, though not food (horse feed contains copper which is poisonous to sheep – I have learned so much about these lovely creatures in the fast few days).
