Happy Mother's Day - Lamb Camp Style

Back in the early spring, when the warm sun still felt good and the lambs were small enough to pick up and snorgle, I got to play Lamb Camp at Morgandell Reds.  Why it took so long to share the pictures...I don't know.  

These are always some of my favorite lambs.  I just love California Reds.  Not only are they pretty and have lovely wool, but they are calm, friendly sheep and I could sit out in the field with them all day.

"Hey, this scarecrow has a bell we can ring!"

"See if he has any treats in his pocket!"

"Hey, what are you kids up to?"

"Nothing, mom!"

"You gots any treats in you pocket, lady?"

That warm spring sun.



Andrea will be set up at the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival in Lexington next weekend and she's going to be bringing some beautiful fleeces and processed roving, but she's also bringing some moms and babies!  She'll be set up in the livestock tent.  Stop in for some Lamb Camp snorgling and shopping :-D.

Wish I lived close enough to stop by and pet the baby sheepies. :-)

I had no idea sheep came in that color! And to think I thought I had learned "all about sheep" from reading your blog these many years. I have learned a little bit about about many things, however. Thanks for inviting us into your world.

CA Reds must be perfect moms for you to not have any bummer lambs in your flock!
