Who is Doodle, you ask? Doodle is one of the four lambs (sheep) who make up the McLamby family. He lives in the Northern Highlands of Scotland, and this is his blog. That's right; life from a lamb's point of view. Doodle, and his brother Snowball, were orphaned lambs and raised on bottles...first in the garage and backyard of their people ("Dad" and "Mom")...then out in the big field with their "Uncles" Rosebud and Shermy, two big Cheviot sheep who are also...er...pet sheep. Sometimes it's just fine for someone to have no other purpose in life but to live and be one of God's creatures. That's Doodle, Snowball, Rosebud, and Shermy. Welcome to their world!

Snowball is Nettled

Hey kid!  You'll poke your eye out!
Here we see Snowball having more nettle-eating practice.  He's actually standing up in all those nettles, even though he looks like he is lying down.  See how tall the nettles and grasses are?

Here he is, doing a little taste-testing.  That's a very Snowball thing to do.

Moving on to some different nettles.  If it were me, I'd eat my way to the different nettles!

Chomp.  Chomp.  Chomp.  He must have found nettles he likes.

Munch.  Munch.  Munch.  A little grass in between doesn't hurt, either.

Hey kid!  I said, you'll poke your eye out!  Lemme show you how to eat nettles properly, so there's no danger.

Uncle Shermy takes a moment to lower himself to our level and show us proper nettle-eating techniques.  Thanks, Uncle Shermy!
You'll be happy to know, Snowball is now probably the best nettle-eater of us all!
