Bye, little guys. Have a good life.
Wendell, looking a little yellow due to the tinted window.
Later I went out to check the water tub in the pasture the non-breeding group is in. They have the area behind the barn which includes a nice stand of locust trees which provide great shade. The slope is troublesome in very wet weather but today it was a nice place to rest. They don't have to be crowded together but apparently the very best spot to stand in is at the corner of the barn where the breeze comes from two directions. I think all the fleece types are represented here - white Cotswold, gray Cotswold, and crossbreds in white, gray, black and moorit.
Pearl's daughter Pretty has been rubbing her forehead on the snowfence. It's coated in iron oxide paint which is thankfully non-toxic and does wear off quickly when it gets on wool. FYI, if you're looking for good old fashioned wood slat snow fence it's not called snow fence any more - it's 'erosion control fencing'. I would never have thought of that if I was searching a catalog or website.
"Whatever you call them, a fence is a nuisance. Take 'em down, I say."
Pretty's fleece is really showing her Cotswold heritage.
I sure wish I could keep them all as clean until next year as they are right now!
