  1. It does make you wonder *who* stretched the fence!! Were they coming or going?

  2. stretched areas in fence always seem to be weird sizes! As cold as it has turned -- maybe the ears were frozen stiff enough to cause the opening - brrrrr. Always good to see your sheep and your fun comments.

  3. May the spirit of Christmas leave its rich blessings in the hearts of you and yours! hugs NG

  4. Is the fence stretching phenomenon coinciding with the winter solstice similar to the "mystery" of the crop circles???? ;)

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Hi! This is most intriguing. I'm wondering if two sheep both had their heads in the one hole and got stuck, the struggle to break free may have caused that sort of a bend in the fence.

    Thanks for posting this!

  6. Great pic as always, FG! Hope you, Joe, and all the critters are having a merry ChristmaHanuKwanzaa, and keeping snuggly-warm.

  7. That's another great shot!

    Here's wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! :D

  8. Merry Christmas Susan and Joe and a long list of 4 legged (oops - sorry Whitey) non-human residents of your bit of paradise on earth. 'tis Christmas Eve and seems that everyone can snuggle down for the quiet week between Christmas and New Year's - we aren't expecting any goat babies this year so going to be an easy winter for us! Thank you for your photography and comments - your blog is a pleasant spot in the internutty webworld!

  9. such a nice photo
