Valais Blacknose Sheep

Well, OK, it’s a lamb not a full grown sheep.  I’d love to give credit for this picture, but I couldn’t find the origin. If it’s yours, please let me know. 

It’s far too long since sheep made an appearance on Mings. These guys are probably my favourites. Some breeds just get untidy as they grow up; this breed achieves the impossible - they just get  progressively bigger doses of cuteness (is that a word?).

This one’s for c@t, who was kind enough to point out an opportunity to improve Mings and whom you should all follow immediately.
