Springtime


"Hey, where's everybody going?"


After a couple weeks of really nice weather, we had two really cold nights.  22 degrees cold!  We closed up the barn doors and fed a bunch of extra hay and everyone seems to have gotten through okay.  The low tonight is 43.  Much better for sheared sheeps.  Still, even though it was cold, about half the flock was so excited about the green grass that they didn't even stick around for breakfast this morning.


Baaxter just realized he'd been left behind.  That was him eating with Rebecca Boone in the first picture.  He's a good eater :-).


Hank realized he'd been left behind, too!


Another big group, but still not everyone, races along to catch up as well.


Happy sheep.


"Wait Up!!!"

I really like the framing on the "happy sheep" photo with the symmetry of the trees against the skyline, the fence, and the silouette of the sheep all tangential to each other.

Love the green grass there!! It's still an olivey-brown here.

They look so excited about the spring! Beautiful!

Must be nice!

Glad they are enjoying :)

That's so sweet . . . . nobody wants to be left behind! I wonder if Hank visually takes an inventory to decide whether to go out or stay with the remaining sheep? Or perhaps he goes out regardless of how the flock splits up? He must feel as though he is always needed somewhere. Such a good boy!
