Looks like the sheep are enjoying a little rest and relaxation–especially Hamish, who appears to be catching up on his beauty sleep. 🙂
I think Clover is watching me watching him. 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!
It seems just like yesterday that we sheared our sheep; however, it was actually May. These photographs were taken right after Clover and the other nine sheep were sheared last spring. Now, they’re all woolly and ready to be sheared, again!

WHAT HAPPENED to my other ear?!” No worries, Hamish. It’s just tucked behind your right horn. 😉 ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Day 3 of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge for which I was nominated by […]
These photographs were taken in the spring a few years ago. I especially love that Clover, one of my favorite sheep, seemed to enjoy watching the chickens scratch in the grass and chase bugs.

A performance of Bizet’s Carmen was planned with Ms. Dirlikov in the lead. Not only is Carla Dirlikov an amazing talent, she is also a humanitarian, animal lover, […]
