You Might Well Ask, Why?

Thirsty - The Sheep

This is Thirsty. She is a ewe who got that name because she was at one time a bummer lamb (that is, a lamb whose mother rejected her). Bummer lambs need to be bottle fed using some milk replacer such as LambLac. She was quite ill and for a while we didn’t think she’d live. But she did, and once she was healthy, she was one thirsty lamb. Hence the name Thirsty. When she was very small, when she wasn’t in the house, she was on the deck. Eventually, she was moved into the field with the rest of the sheep. She was quite vocal when she thought it was time for her to be fed. Thirsty is pretty much the Alpha ewe — the one the other sheep follow.

In case you’re wondering why I have posted her picture here, the answer lies over at Katibab’s Blog. I would very much like to have my own demon sheep.
