Your daily doses pics are a nice addition to my day. Cute begins to describe them. Are sheep hard to keep?
So sorry for my ignorance, but why is everything so brown? It's spring, isn't it?
You always have the cutest photos....thanks for sharing them with us.Connie
Ack! So cute! I love your photos.
The spotted lamb is so very cute!
Hi Yellow Dog,The bouncing sickness has already reached epidemic proportions this year. It's adorable!Hi Don,So glad you're enjoying the photos. As far as sheep being hard to keep - well, they are quite a bit of work, especially if your fencing situation is severely lacking (as in, who has $25,000 to spend on fencing?). But they're fun to be around, and they provide us with some of the best meat I've ever eaten.Lambing season is the busiest time of year for us, especially since we're also feeding hay several times a day, but the cuteness is worth all the extra work! ; )Hi Suzanne,Good observation! It is indeed spring, and things are starting to green up, but the pregnant and mother ewes are penned up in the barnyard which is basically mud, manure, and hay this time of year. And it backs up to the wooded side of the ridge which only has the barest hint of green poking through.Hi Connie,Thanks for taking the time to write and let me know you're enjoying the photos. : )Hi Emily,Sometimes I'm so busy tending to the lambs I forget just how incredibly cute they are (if that makes any sense). Then when I do, it's serious cute overload, and I race around trying to snatch one up. They're really quick!Hi Mimi,I have to admit I have a soft spot (hee hee) for the spotted lambs myself.
