Fotos of the Flock
The Shepherd moved his girls onto the back pasture last weekend.
They came in for grain that night, but weren't too interested in the hay.
They were full of lush green grass.
Take one last look at these fluffy little sheep.
Tomorrow they all get nekked.
Unfortunately I forgot to ask for the day off, so I will miss shearing this year. Darn.
We're not plump, we're fluffy!
This is also the first year since we've had sheep that we won't be having lambs. It just didn't work out this year.
So, one less worry.
The neighbors with grand-kids are all disappointed though.
Well, they don't have to get up at 2:00 in the morning to go out and check that ewe who, at 11:00 when we went to bed, looked like she just might be ready to give birth.
And since the boys have never "been there/done that" they weren't even disappointed.
You'll get your chance next year, Maks.
