Heimdal, named for the Norse guardian of the gods is our Icelandic ram.  I was commissioned to make a portrait of him by my landlady.  Because our Icelandic sheep have such long wool that comes in multi-colored locks, Heimdal's coat was a bit of a challenge.  I had to roll up dozens of little strips of wool to make them look like his locks and then blend them with layers of white and brown.
