Always Greener

I've spent quite a bit of the last couple of weeks over at Final Frontier Farm trying to help where I could with lambing. Normally everything is completely under control over there, but life is frequently not normal. Kathy's helped me so much over the years, as have many other good shepherds.  I'm happy to try and return the favor.

Because I've been gone so much, I've had to rely on extra help here at Equinox Farm.  St. Tim, of course.  Hank, of course.  Iris, of course.  Weaslie, not so much, of course ;-).  And the cats?  Still sleeping on the porch, of course.  Luckily we've got a good weed eating crew.

Maise Marie!  What are you doing?

Because there's obviously a shortage of grass on her side of the fence...


Chocula, showing proper form for a long legged sheep.

Daniel, too!

And on down the fence row they work.

It probably goes without saying that I'm way behind with all sorts of things including answering emails and skirting reserved (or any :-o) fleeces.  I haven't forgotten anyone...I hope.  If you haven't heard back from me by the middle to end of next week, please check back in.

A Little Help Here?

"I could use a little help here."

"A little help?"


"I can't believe I'm stuck here."

"Lady, can you put that camera down and get this kid off me?!?"

A Profound Thought?

Sometimes you find your luck in the middle of beautiful green field...

And sometimes you find it in the middle of a pile of sheep poop :-D.

Hey, it's Monday.  Whadya expect?  ;-). 

"Wake me up when it's over."

Sunday Stills - Yellow...With A Lamb Too Of Course ;-)

Thanks, Ed, for keeping the challenges coming!

Did you know this about dandelions?

And for more Lamb Camp...

The second favorite nap spot - by the door on a rainy afternoon. Final Frontier Farm.

The Best Part Of Lamb Camp

Lamb Snorgling :-D

"I have a mark on my head 'cause I need special attention."

"And I love when the nice ladies hold me so I stay toasty warm :-)."

"Help!!!  I've been abducted!!!  Somebody call the police!!!"

"My sister is such a drama queen."

"I TOLD you to stop following me. My mom's gonna call the police!" 

"You can take my picture. I'll even smile nice :-)." 

Good ol' Olive.  She'd only call the police if you didn't give her a cracker.  She's a Keebler cousin :-).

Lamb Camo

I took these pictures throughout a lazy, rainy day. Lambs love to sleep in the bottom of this hay manger. This well fed lamb slept in there so long (hours!) I finally woke her up to make sure she was okay. She gave me the same "I can't believe you are doing this to me!" look as she did when the hay kept falling on her ;-).
