A Blue Sky Kind of Day

On of the great joys of working closely with animals is seeing them happy. And nothing makes a ruminant happier than a fresh pasture. We turned most of the flock out today and it was such a wonderful thing to see. dsc_0065

    OMG – lookit those FACES! Beautiful pics Susie!

  2. I can’t get over the third pic….that’s some fleece!

  3. What beautiful, beautiful photography.
    You really need to put your OWN book out!

    PS. I do believe that is Ernie in the 5th shot – reminds me of this sheepdog cartoon:

  4. Love the bangs on that fifth picture!

    Oh, and Patrick with the dogs. I LOVE when we get to see the dogs!

  5. Beautiful shots, Susan!!

    I can’t believe how big unshorn sheep are! Wow.

    Is that Ernie modeling his new ‘do?

    When will the rest be shorn?

  6. The 6th photo of the Rasta goats (?) or are they sheep?, I’m still a challenged city dwelling country wanna be is my FAV! I took 117 salvageable shots at your Shearing day Susan, all 10 of my friends (including mom) had a blast, thank you again for your hospitality, thanks to everyone for the food/deserts and thanks to the Heavens for stopping the rain for an entire day. [hope you liked the pie]

  7. Fantastic. Here’s to getting the whole flock sheared before long. That will be a load off.

    I love that grin on the second picture!

  11. Love the photos naturally … but also thanks for linking to Wikipedia so us novices could keep up on our sheep-farm terminology! Ruminant – I will have to remember that one for my next game of Scrabble.

  12. Oh my… so many cute faces!!!!

  13. So so gorgeous, the most lovely and happy animals I’ve seen. How well they are cared for.

  14. That one sheep looks like the sheep dog with the bangs from the old cartoon!

  15. I love how the goats look like emo teenagers with their hair growing all in their eyes! Lol

  16. The second picture of the ram with his teeth showing made me lol… I mean I love that pic. They r so sweet.

  17. o…you got another dog…boy, am i behind!
