I'm loving these warm, sunny days. Spring has sprung and the orchard is getting very tasty. People are coming to visit me and I love this, though apparently jumping up to say hello is baad, very baad. But I find it hard to resist because I'm such a sociable sheep.

I've had some requests for another ovine joke, so here goes:

What do you get if you put a sheep in an oven?*

A woolly sweater.

Haa haa haa haa baa baa baa!!

Well, it's time for me to go I suppose. I'll try to write again soon, if I'm not too busy stuffing my face. I would like to tell you now that I am not fat, I just have a huge fleece.

Yours fluffily,

*Please do not try this. It is just an ovine joke.


  1. Hello Sam,
    I noticed that you and Wilf are doing a lot of racing and chasing up and down the orchard - must be Spring fever!
