Horatio is another named sheep who slipped under the radar this shearing, drat! Horatio is named after Horatio Hornblower, in honour of his gorgeous horns. He’s not a pet, and he’s only 3 years old, but some months ago, he decided that I was onto a good thing as flock leader, and he began tracking me. He’s generally near the front of the flock, often the first through a gate when I’m leading, though he won’t let me touch him. He's another we missed getting a fleece from this year. Next year, for sure!
