Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn’t know where to find them
Leave them alone
And they’ll come home
Wagging their tails behind them

Little Bo Peep she searched for her sheep
But didn’t quite know how to find them
She looked everywhere
From here and to there
But still couldn’t think where to find them

Little Bo Peep began to weep
And lay down to rest for a while
She fell fast asleep
While counting her sheep
Then dreamt they came home with a smile

Little Bo Peep had fallen asleep
And dreamt that she was all alone
But when she awoke
And pulled back her cloak
She saw that her sheep had come home

Little Bo Peep had lost her sheep
And didn’t know where to find them
She left them alone
And they came home
Wagging their tails behind them

I really hope this is true or someone else will be loving (maybe eating) 5 beautiful brown sheep and maybe some lambs….  please come home girls (and naughty Romeo who surely led them away looking for more conquests), I will give you even more barley every day.

It appears they have escaped to the other side of the fence onto a 300 acre wilderness.  Good way to get to know ALL of the neighbours on the other side of the ridge as I have phoned them this evening and they were all wonderful and supportive.  I just hope they come home soon before the lambs arrive.
