Mad Dogs And Englishmen...And Jared

Today is hopefully the last brutally hot day for a bit.  We supposedly have rain and some cooler (mid 80s) temps coming for the next several days.  Yesterday was miserably hot and humid.  The sheep hunkered down in the barn in front of the fans for most of the day...well, all except Jared.

When the vet was here the other day to take Maisie's stitches out and check on old Clover Belly, she noticed a sheep out grazing by himself in the middle of the afternoon.  "Who's that?" she asked.  "Big J.  He does this all the time." 

Usually you'd be watching for a sheep who stayed back at the barn by himself while everyone else was out grazing.  We like to keep 'em guessing here at Equinox Farm ;-).

He has the field all to himself...sometimes it is a needed activity to be alone:)

Jared has to work hard to keep up his physique!

Jared doesn't give a rip about what others think--or so it seems.

Big J, a good sheep!
How is ole Clover Belly doing? How old is she now?
Miss Maisie behaving... as well as Miss Maisie can?

Clover Belly is 15, which is old, but not *that* old for a Jacob. She's okay, but something is off and we can't put our finger on it :-/.
