Camera Critters

I want to thank my niece in Germany for sending me my Camera Critters post this week.  At the moment she is looking after three mountain sheep which are kept in the back garden.  As you can see it is very steep and extremely difficult to mow. The sheep keep the grass nice and short.   

Let me introduce you to Asterix, Oblix and Nero.  My niece and her fiance have become very fond of them.  I think I would too.

These characters are adorable! Love their spiralled head gear! And such a beautiful hillside on your own property!

That is surely some garden Denise. I can't imagine having to cut that grass but I'll bet the sheep don't mind keeping it in check.

Great Pictures. Beautiful sheep.
My daughter lived in Germany for a while. Beautiful Country, I certainly more than enjoyed my time there and she did too.

Love the sheep and the thought of them "mowing" and "fertilizing" the lawn! Looks like a "win/win" for everyone!

I still can't figure out how to tell a goat and a sheep apart. These fellows are awfully cute.
