Ewes and Lambs

I was passing by our neighbor’s sheep the other day, so I stopped to take a few quick pics to share. The recently sheared ewes look a little sorry for themselves, but I could see that their wool has already started growing back in. The lambs are 3-4 weeks old now and growing like little weeds.

They run around like racehorses.

This one looks like a triple crown winner to me.

The love the color and markings on this one. His wool looks so silky on his legs. Here, he was calling his mama, who was no more than a couple feet away. They do that a lot.

I’d like to get a video of them playing together. All the hopping, head butting, and running.  Stay tuned.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    Little lambs are so cute. I was on a farm years ago where I was able to pet some. I’ve never forgotten it.

    Love your blog/website. Check out my friends website in Newport Wash. Snowy Pines Ridge. She just getting started. I told her to check yours out to learn more. I made the bread and biscuits. Biscuits were fab!! So was wheat bread. Because I grind my own wheat its better. Thank you.
