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.


Maisie Marie!  What are you doing?


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


"Mrwhagt?!?"


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.

I'd say the grass IS greener on the other side of that fence. Those sheep know what's good!!!

These are some hilarious photos and yours are such special animals. Like all animals are.

I do hope all gets back to normal as soon as possible at your friend's farm.

Good friends are worth a pot of gold.

Maisie Marie huh? Didn't know she had acquired a second name! To be used only when she is in trouble, I presume.
