Moving day - or - Out into the BIG WIDE world

It wasn't bright and sunny this afternoon, but it wasn't horrible and rainy either - The boys had lots of visitors - about 20 friends from church showed up to check out the new babies. After they were all gone and things had calmed down some, it was Moving Day. The moms were definately starting to get stir crazy in the lambing jugs and it is best move them at a time when The Shepherd can be around to watch.

Taylor and Buddy aren't too sure what's beyond those walls - Anna Dee didn't seem to be in too much of a hurry to get out after all - we had to actually go in and "shoo" them out!

Once they hit the pasture, tho, there didn't seem to be much to slow them down. Anna Dee was having a hard time keeping up with them - Boing, boing, boing - like they had springs in their little feet - back & forth, back and forth - It is a kind of joy that you don't see very often.

The aunties were all curious about what was going on in that pasture - who's out there???

Gwennie is probably the calmest that she has been in the last year. and remarkably polite to Anna Dee - hope it lasts...

Glad we have a digital camera - you know how hard it is to hit a moving target, don't you? We'll try not to drive you bonkers with pictures, but, golly isn't he cute?

Hmmph, more of those sumb sheep pictures - and not enough of me!

Don't worry, Anna Dee - Regina is used to the boys going off on their own, aren't you Regina. In fact, it's the only time you get a little piece and quiet!

HB, Taylor and Buddy say thank you to all of the "hooman beans" who came out to see them today. Hope you all have a great week!

What a nice idea - guests all at once! We've been having them dribble by, but still ejoy showing them the sheep.

Give Sinda and Neelix a pat from me!

And the boys do "look maaavelous!"

I had a ewe lamb with a spot on the back of her head, like HB, last year. I named her "Polka Dot". She lives in PA now and just had an HST baby!

Your place (and your SHEEP!) look beautiful!!

So cute. Funny how they know what to do with their world once they get out in to it.
