Meanwhile, Back At The Ranch

By the time we got to the Jacobs on shearing day it was getting late, everyone was tired and they got shorted on pictures.  I love the sunbleached chocolate color of their full fleeces, but also love how black and white they look underneath.  We've had some lovely evening light this spring.


The T's.  Ts just looks wrong.  I'm in a grammar vortex :-o.


Sun to the camera face.


Sun to my back.


Billy Belly and Annabelly.  Both came through winter in good order.  I was relieved.  I was afraid they'd be thin.  They are both 13 I think.  Or, wait, Billy Belly is just 12.  Annabelly was the first Emily lamb.  Billy Belly and Baby Belly were her second lambs...

Time flies!

No worries. The Bellies have bellies. And the Ts; yeah, a I think they need that apostrophe, even though it's grammatically incorrect. T-spots, maybe as a short, non-apostrophe form? Or Tees?

You do love your T's :)

btw, a bit off topic, you might love 'The Martian' audiobook (https://audiobooksbookshop.com/product/the-martian-audiobook/) - I can give you a coupon so that you can get it for free. After all, I also love sheep :) and maybe we can populate them on mars ;)

I am excited to see what my little flock looks like shaved - another 6 weeks to go though! The Bellies look so amazing for their ages - my Suckie is 12 and I just can't seem to get weight on her. She has no teeth left at all which does not help, and they don't make care guides for elderly sheep!
