With one thing and another, I have been too busy to take photos of the sheep. And when there is a spare moment, the mosquitoes and deer flies and horse flies are so horrible I don't want to stand out there in the long grass! The poor sheep! They have to deal with it 24/7.
Tonight I was determined to take a few shots. Not many pictures turned out since both the shepherd and the sheep were trying to keep from being devoured by bugs. And that meant a lot of movement. Oh, well...
The entire ewe/lamb flock.
Full sisters, Vianne and Lyneth. My AnnaBelle daughters.
Vianne lost her first lamb to pneumonia a few days after it was born. But it was a beautiful ewe lamb...so I have high hopes of another just as nice next spring. Lyneth is 3 years old and has not produced a lamb yet. I don't really have breeding hopes for her anymore. Thankfully, she is friendly and has lovely fleece. I also just think she is a pretty girl. For the time being, I have room for her.
Some lamb tails...left to right:

The only good photo I could get of Francesca, who is so friendly she is usually crawling on me.
