The big rams are really enjoying the cool weather. Usually the midday sun sends them lumbering to the shade under the trees.
Tonight they came into the barnyard and stood around in a small group as though trying to decide what to do next - go inside and sit down or graze a little more in the small barn paddock.
B.B., aka Mr. B., is starting to turn gray!
Wee Little Guy isn't so wee anymore and actually looks pretty studly but he's still very sweet.
I let Castillo keep his "cool hair" and so far it's staying clean - no burrs or chaff.
I still need to replace Nigel's eartag but there's no confusing him with anyone else so it can wait until we give yearly vaccinations (which is on The List..... sigh.) He has cool Cotswold hair!
Down in the lower barn Snubby is always good for a picture or two.
"Is that grain in that bucket right there?"
"I could really use a bite of that...... just sayin' ."
The lambs are harder to take pictures of. They either move too fast or head right for me and all I see is nose prints on the lens.
This is Stewart Little, the smallest bottle lamb this year. Yes, he's named..... you know what that means - he'll have to "give up a little something" in order to stay as a pet down in the ewe flock.
Aannnnddd of course he has one very best friend. He's got no mom, I can't very well take away his best friend....... (I'm turning into SUCH a sucker...)..... Last year it was Peanut and Popcorn..... have to think of another name..... (smacks forehead with hand).
Stewart Little on left, and.....??????
"Um.....let's call him....."
"......Late for dinner! HAHAHAHAHA!"
Oh, you boys!
