His Sheepiness.

Here is Norman in his new coat.  Fascinating stuff, no?  Had to take these with my phone camera, since I managed to leave my precious REAL camera in Melanie's car. 

I thought he looked kind of thin in the first picture, but not so, when viewed from the back(side).  This coat is large enough to last him through most of the winter, I think.  Just in case, I have the next size up.  Don't want him walking around in a girdle.

Don't threaten me with that apple, lady...

  1. I would like to coat my sheep but don't think they would like it if it's 100+. And then there is the cost of a wardrobe to keep them all in various sizes.

    1. TL - They'd probably strike! I would love to coat my Icelandics, but they felt immediately. I found that out the hard way. The wardrobe cost is definitely something to consider - I am glad I only have ONE to outfit.

  2. I'm thinking Norman just wants his apples processed a little bit. Like with a crust over and under, kinda pie-like. No? He does look good in his new coat. :o)

  3. So, stupid question......Assuming you put a coat on him because you want to keep the wool nice & clean (as possible), not because he gets easily chilled? Because I know it's like winter way up there like nine months out of the year, but it must be pretty warm right now.

    1. Carolyn - Nothing stupid about that question. Yes, it's so he doesn't get a bale's worth of hay particles worked down to the skin. Like the Icelandics. These particular coats are 'breathable', so they don't get overheated.

  4. I didn't even know there were coats for sheep. This will be nice for those cold New York winters.

    1. Michelle - I may have to knit him one if it gets too cold this winter! :)

    1. Linda - He's such a cutie. He reminds me of a cartoon sheep.
