If you ever come by for a visit, these are a few faces you will see here at Keepers Of The Past! I hope you will enjoy viewing MY SHEEP, thier home and a few little friends! If you have the extra time, I hope you will also enjoy reading this sweet little poem.
Little Lamb, who made thee? Dost thou know who made thee? Gave thee life, and bid thee feed, By the stream and o`er the mead; Gave thee clothing of delight, Softest clothing, wooly, bright; Gave thee such a tender voice, Making all the vales rejoice? Little Lamb, who made thee? Dost thou know who made thee?
Little Lamb, I`ll tell thee, Little Lamb, I`ll tell thee, He is called by thy name, For he calls himself a Lamb, He is meek, and he is mild, He became a little child. I a child, and thou a Lamb, We are called by his name. Little Lamb, God bless thee! Little Lamb, God bless thee! Written by: William Blake (poet/artist)

As they say......when the Cat's away the mouse will play! I found this little guy one morning as I went to feed the sheep. Obviously, he managed to get in the feed again! I ran home to get my camera and gently scooped him out and let him go. He was so cute with his little FULL belly, I just had to share this photo!

HERE IS THE LEGEND OF HOW A DONKEY GOT IT'S CROSS. I HOPE YOU ENJOY!
Legend tells us the donkey that carried Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday followed Him to Calvary. Appalled by the sight of Jesus on the cross, the donkey turned away but could not leave. It is said that the shadow of the cross fell upon the shoulders and back of the donkey. A cross marking found on many donkeys today remains a testimony of the love and devotion of a humble, little donkey.
THIS IS MY LITTLE RED BULL "CHANCE". I AM RAISING HIM ON THE BOTTLE AND HE IS SPOILED ROTTEN!
