Today its a hot one and the sheep are sensibly resting in the shade of .....you guessed it, an Oak tree! Well, ok, they also like to lay under the pines and the cottonwoods. This year we have a bumper crop of lambs dressed in soft black fleeces so I am very happy to see them in the shade.
This morning while it was cool I did some yummy work in the garden pulling up stuff that had gone to seed. The lambs, rams and moms all got a share of the loot. Leeks, kale and overgrown cucumber plants were eagerly inspected for possible edibles. Alas, a snuggle from one of the moms out by the pond came with onion breath!
I will close this first blog addition with an invitation to come back soon! I will try to add a little humor to your day with antics of short sheep, Nigerian Dwarf goats, Japanese chickens and the Dorkies. Wonder what a Dorkie is? Come back soon!
