What Are We, Chopped Liver???

It's not ALL about the baby lambs.  Well, maybe for a few sweet weeks in the springtime... ;-).  But grown up lambs are almost as sweet as baby lambs!


I love when our sheep are rotated out in the Pond Field.  Especially when the grass is starting to get really green and the sun is shining (mostly) and the sky is so blue.


And Hank is out there taking good care of everyone.


Especially Maisie :-).


You might not know this, but Daniel has white spots all over.  This will probably be the last year we'll be able to see them very well as his brown is fading to tan and his white is dirty-ing up to tan ;-).


There are far worse places to be than laying out on your back in the fresh grass on a warm spring afternoon :-D.


I was going to make a funny comment about B. Willard looking like he's getting ready to lamb, but Lila, who is also not due to lamb, kind of makes Willard not look quite so, um, hefty.  And poor skinny teenage Chocula.  This time next year we'll probably be making fun of him as well.  Sigh.



Just so no one goes into Kissy Lips withdrawals ;-).  Another lamb from Kathy's.

OMG Lila and B.Willard. :) Lightbulb moment for me though. I finally understand how my yearling lincolns will reach the published breed standard weights -- they're gonna grow straight outwards. Holy moly.

Idyllic!

Wish I were there to lie in the green grass too...

Love that Hank is such a good protector.

What a great post! That photo of Hank stretched out in the sunshine makes me feel like I can almost smell the fresh air and feel the rays on my face. Nice :-)

I have some serious fence envy going on. I am interested in picking up some critters but my fencing is all barbed wire. Maybe I'll get rich and famous one day and put in nice fences. :)

Old farm habits die hard...2nd photo, two posts to the right of Hank, Top Plank off post! I have these paranoid issues with things horses can get hooked on. I love the spring feel to these photos, every one is taking full advantage of the day!

Take care and happy sheeping!

I wanted to say that I liked the first picture the most, but once I moved down the post, I realized there was too much competition for that title. What a treat all of your posts are!:-)
