Well done, I like these carvings. The fur on the sheep is excellent.

Dick buddy really cool stuff the sheep are awsome. Looks like you are really busy and dont have any snow. We still have cold weather and snow here I am still not carving much. I am looking forward to comiing over to the UK but may be later than I thought looks as if I may have a job that will take me to the end of August so I may have to come in September now. Always a treat to see your art sir you are the man.
Colin

Wonderful work! I was also caught by the sheep wool design and tucked it away for the future.

Hi Dick,
Very nice work. The sheep reminded me of the lady at Robbin's carving course in the Halburton's last year except you managed to get the ear's on as well.
Thanks for posting,

Bob
