New Grass

Clancy mowing a path for the fence.
Though not our lush, reseeded pasture, this part of the yard had not been grazed since May. The daisies, red clover, and timothy are in full bloom and starting to set seed already.
The sheep love being moved to fresh pasture. They attack alfalfa, clover, leafy plants, and daisy heads first; in that approximate order. When the delicacies are gone, they go after their favorite grasses.
It's hard to get good photos when the forage covers up most of the animal. The sheep do not seem to mind this as much as the shepherd does. :)

It's always fun to watch the sheep attack a new pasture. Looks like you've had plenty of rain?

Yes, it was dry for a while, but we've had a bit now and it's a relief.

That looks like handspinning delight! Bombarde is a real treasure.
