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!

Check out the video of Horatio below.  For more Horatio stories, try searching the Farm Journals pages
