A Good Old Chicken

This was a fun Instagram post. It remains a fun Instagram post...but boy, June 19 seems like forever ago now :-/.  

The end of an era.  She was a character.  I buried her in the sheep cemetery, right next to Buddy.

Lamb Camp...In The Summer?!?

Oh, those silly Soays ;-).  

"Who you calling silly?"

"Don't listen to her."

Beautiful Duchess and her surprise summer lambs.

If you aren't already following Shepherd Life, you'll want to go catch up on all the Splendid Games over there.

Sunday Stillness

I didn't leave the house until 7:00 this morning. There was just a slight hint of fog so I assumed I'd just overslept and missed it and was trying to decide if I could still count a fog if I didn't technically see it.  I guessed not, but decided maybe I'd get some flurries out of this one.  

The morning was pretty, regardless, so I grabbed my camera and walked down the hill.

The sheep were spread out in several paddocks.  The white down by the creek is Hank.  The whiter look to the sky...

...soon became this.

And this, just 10 minutes after the first picture was taken.

So I guess the snow is going to start slow and then dump a blizzard on us?  I'll take it ;-).

Well...he didn't live forever.  He didn't go down without a helluva fight though and I had to call it in the end.  I think he understood.

Fog Friends

Don't get too excited.  No fog this morning.  The August count is four so far though :-).  

This is actually a picture from last week.  I love B. Willard and Liddy grazing together and I figured it might make a fun puzzle.  Trying to get back into the routine of blogging.  It's been a long, hard summer, but there are still plenty of fun things to share that I don't want to forget.
