We know there were shepherds watching over their flocks by night
when the Angel of the Lord came before them and made them sore afraid.
I don’t know how much those special lambs understood
about their role in this wonderful, real-life Christmas play,
but since a lamb has long been another name for Christ
and HE is often called The Lamb,
I assume that a lamb has a very special little spirit.
And, that is a nice thing to assume.
They are quiet, peaceful creatures.
Since I couldn’t find Bristle Lambs, I made them using pigs.
These are ceramic pigs which were sold as tree ornaments.
[ They don’t know that they are pigs. ]
They look and sound and think just like lambs.
