Ophelia

Top Milker & Drama Queen

A lady with a large appetite and flare for the dramatic.  Very athletic, almost goatlike in her love for climbing.

Sapphire

Newest Recruit

This beautiful girl with delicate features and sapphire eyes is this season's newbie.

Portia

Slurper

Has a habit of slurping her water in a rather loud manner.  Unique coloring and easy to milk.

Ivy

Ready for Anything

A sheep with the most expressive eyes--either looks surprised or pleading.  Always has the scruffiest wool. Daughter of Esme.

Cleo

Cute & Naughty

She looks cute and sweet but she'll try to jump into the milk cooling room if you aren't looking.

Andromeda

Boisterous & Affectionate

Daughter of Ophelia .  A friendly girl, loves her head scratched.  Always the biggest voice.  Often spotted with a wreath of hay round her neck.  Performs a dance of impatience to get into the milking parlor.  Wags her tail when she gets a meal.

Cypress

Impatient & Pushy

An attentive mama, but never lets anyone get in the way of her food.  She has the belly to show for it.  Can't stand to wait for anything.

Esmeralda (Esme)

Calm and Steady

The only relaxed lady in the herd.  Has triplets every year.  Reliable and quiet demeanor.

Desdemona (Desie)

Steady & Reliable

The once Kickin' Desie has matured into a calm lady and a caring mama.  Usually can be seen relaxing in the pasture with 1, 2, or 3 lambs climbing on top of her back.

Persephone

Patient & Mild

This little girl has provev to be an  amazing milk producer.   And even though she has a fuller udder than most, she's willing to wait to be milked until the very last. A quick learner.

Aphrodite (Dite)

Untrusting & Distraught

Our most nervous sheep. Terrified of being alone.  Needs a bit of extra assistance.

Viola

Hangs in the Back

Rarely out front in the herd and rather shy, but never has any problems.   Strong and self-reliant.

Orchid

Feisty

If there is a fight, usually Orchid is involved.  But she loves a good head rub. Sister of Cypress.

Effie_edited.jpg

Effie

Relaxed

Like her mother Esme, Effie is a very calm lady.  That is until she gets on the milking stand and starts to kick--beware your wrists.

Support Staff

Benny

The lurker.  He'll stare you down and follow, but never wants to be touched.  He's our resident weirdo.   Usually can be found wandering around the yard as our lawncare specialist.

rosie_edited_edited.jpg

Rosie

An affectionate, curious, lovely lady who loves to rub noses.  Pasture greeter and herd protector (she will not let a dog near the pasture).  Always ready to protect the lambs against an intruder.

Percival

A handsome gentleman.  Rosie's son.  Generally never more than a foot away from her.  Still learning to trust like his mama.

It is with a very sad heart that I must announce that beautiful Percy is no longer with us.  After a bout with parasites in the fall of 2021, he passed away.  He is greatly missed.

Hugo

The Young Ram

Bottle-fed and raised in the house of one of Locust Hollow's employees.  Became accustomed to riding in a car from his adopted home to the farm to play with his siblings.

Monster

The Bigger Ram

Generally a mellow dude, but also loves to go over a fence to meet up with ladies he shouldn't.  Acquired his full name of "Milk Monster" due to his habit as a lamb of stealing milk from any ewe he could, including those in the middle of giving birth.

Felix

The Dog

An excitable, happy man.  Really wants to help herd everyone else on the farm, but doesn't really have the technique down.  Equally happy tearing around the pasture as he is passed out on the couch snuggling with one of his favorite humans.
