Of Dogs And Sheep

Just some random shots from Kathy's this past weekend. Now that it's almost Thursday... I've been a little occupied ;-).



Brick - guard dog puppy in training and already a star.



Zee - the old guard. Another good one.



Everyone resting up for a long night's work. Brick is just off to the left. With his lip smushed up on his paw.

Good guard dogs are so important.



A good babysitter always helps too. These lambs do not all belong to this ewe. In fact there are two more just off to the right. I've heard of cows taking turns watching babies, but didn't know sheep did as well.



Lots of green grass doesn't hurt either.



And room to run.



And if you aren't quite ready to join the lamb races while all the mommas eat dinner, that's okay too.

This is a good capture of the farm version of "it takes a village".....to raise a lamb.

All the green grass is so beautiful. We have over a month before Daisy will be able to find a green shoot. The dogs are adorable workers.

The mama sheep is so beautiful watching over the babies. And the bounding lamb is adorable!
