Stuffed Toy?

In an earlier post I mentioned that Tigger sits in a funny position that reminds me of a little fat Buddha statue. I've not been able to get a photo of him sitting this way, because every time I approach his pen he hops up (probably hoping that I'll feed him). However, as Lucy gets further along in her pregnancy she has been sitting in this position as well. I've heard from other Babydoll owners that sitting in this position is common for fat or heavy sheep. Evidently it allows them to breathe better. Whatever the reason, it is really cute - and I'm thrilled that Lucy was kind enough to "pose" for me yesterday while I took some photos of her!

I think it looks like Belle (left) is giving a sheepish (ha ha) "oh no, you caught one of us in an awkward state!"

Just came over from Ravelry (SuseDolAmroth), love the blog, but then I have a soft spot for sheep. AAbout the sheep that's sitting... well it isn't a good sign. have someone experienced condition score him to check if a diet would be appropriate and careful check the feet (particular in the rear for any rotten bits or other issues.
