Out and About
This morning dawned bright and warm-a perfect day to let the sheep roam the farm. They have even started demanding this privilege at noon every day now. Today though, I had to run Greta Grub into the vet to have porcupine quills removed. So the ewes didn't get let out till 1pm when I got back from town. They were pretty dissatisfied with the situation. I took a few pictures... but it is getting harder and harder to catch pictures of the lambs because they are so busy-and all in a mob. I'll try to get some individual portraits soon. I love those best. Some of the flock on the hillside. Little lambs 'round a big tree. I believe this is the largest white pine on our property. From left to right: Vianne, Dan, Niav, Qdy, Darla, Bence. Remember, click on the photo if you would like to "biggify" it. The oldest lambs up front, with Rai Min's twin rams, Rigg and Roux in the background. I love how chunky the older lambs are. They are butterballs! And finally, my most exciting ram lamb: 3-day-old Jchen.
