Thursday morning walk

This morning we walked by the High School Ag (agriculture) plot.  We mentioned before that agriculture is a subject in Australian High Schools.

The horses were gone. 
 We think they are only there in the Spring Term. 
 But we found these:

 They stared at us!
The one on the left got a crappy shearer.

 And we stared back.
Roxy and Daisy in a staring competition.
  But look at that sheep in the back!

She's got a puppy!


  1. LOL. I couldn't help laugh when you mentioned about the sheep having a puppy!

    Nice one, guys. It's interesting how you have agriculture in HS. I think our country should have that as part of the HS curriculum.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  2. Awww at the little puppy :-)
    Hope you didn't shout "mint sauce" and worry the sheep :-)

  3. Awww lambs! How sweet. Pawsome walk with the sheep to eye ball. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly.

  4. We love sheep especially itty bitty puppy sheep. Roxy and Daisy good job on keep the sheep in your sights.
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  5. That's cool that you get to look at animals on a walk. That spices things up. How sweet that little baby lamb.

  6. What a great job checkin' them all out. We love the stare off picture. I bet you won.

    That little puppy is really cute but we agree with Eileen (above). Mint sauce! Bring it on.....

  7. Mmmmmmmm...lamb roast! Mom says it is incredible hard to find lamb here in the USA ....they are all beef eaters......she misses foodables from home. We just want to chase and herd those sheeps and nip at their feet....eeeewww now mom is thinking about lamb shanks...her favorite!

  8. Awe my ain't dat precious!
    Nows I will has dat song in my head all day..."Mary had a little lamb...little lamb.


  9. What a cute little puppy! I don't know if those are meat or wool sheep, but I have spun yarn from Australian wool and your country produces some very nice wool. I've meant to tell you we celebrated Australia Day at the San Diego Zoo where I work. Here are the opening lines of the press release that was sent:

    While it might be Jan. 25 in San Diego, it's Australia Day, Jan. 26, "down under." To celebrate, the San Diego Zoo today announced the launch of Koala Cam, giving online viewers a chance to observe the daily happenings of these marsupials in their exhibit.

    Koala Cam will broadcast the activities of four Queensland koalas: Orana, daughters Sooky and Nariah, and a joey in Nariah's pouch, which was born on July 15, 2012. Koala joeys emerge from their mother's pouch between six and seven months old. Koala Cam viewers should log in often as they will have the unique opportunity to watch for the joey peeking out from Nariah's pouch, grow and be cared for by its mother, just as people worldwide continue to watch the Zoo's panda mother care for her cub on the Zoo's Panda Cam.

    There is a link to the Koala Cam at the Zoo's new site, which introduces the Conrad Prebys Australian Outback exhibit, opening at the Zoo on May 24, 2013.

  10. So that's where Bedlington terriers come from.

  13. Look at that tail wag! I wonder who would have won in a chase!

  14. Ah, what a cute "puppy"! It was nice of you to stare and not bark. Pretty soon there will be lots of those puppies - maybe 87 of them!

    Your Snowy pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  15. We think students in the US need to take agriculture as a subject. Some kids don't even know veggies grow in the ground. Can you imagine?


  16. You gals always seem to have fun on your walks. Every day is a new adventure.


  17. Awwwwwwwwww - the sheep puppy is just adorable!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  24. We would want to go in the pen with the sheep to play. Have a great day.

  25. Aww, we'd love to have a sheep puppy to play with. Mom says she has her hands full with the puppies we already have.
    Morgan, Sebastian, the Porties, Syd and Mac

  26. What a great walk! Sometimes on our leash walks we go past the cow pastures (we live on the edge of a small town) and the cows stare at us. Sure gets the blind girls sniffing lots!

  27. What a fun walk, and what a sweet little puppy!!

  28. AWWWW that sheep puppy is sooooo sweet!!

    You girls have the self-restraint of a vegetarian at an all meat buffet! We'd have been barking out heads off at the first sniff of those sheep!

    Have a grrreat weekend girls,
    Wally & Sammy

  29. Floyd reckons those sheep are nearly as wooly as me!
