Life on our farm: where it's al-l-l-l about the sheep and wool...all day.....every day.....pretty much all the time.....yep.

And They're Off!
Being turned out to pasture each morning is still exciting to the flock. They graze all day, coming in and out of the barn for water and shade, and in the evening we make sure they are all inside and shut the gates. No sense tempting predators in the lonesome dark when there is plenty of room in the barn and bunk for lounging. Later in summer when they've been over every inch of ground and they know there are no more fresh yummy patches of clover to discover - just plain boring grass - they'll leave the barn in a more mannerly trudge. Now, though, it's like opening flood gates.
The main flock with lambs.....
And the group of yearlings and geriatrics.........
And just because spring comes but once a year..... pretty flower pictures. Dandelions and lamium and forget-me-not and bleeding heart.
