A Blue Sky Kind of Day

by Susan on May 10, 2009

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

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:

Love the bangs on that fifth picture!

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

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?

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]

Fantastic. Here’s to getting the whole flock sheared before long. That will be a load off.
Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day: http://tinyurl.com/odqtdn

I love that grin on the second picture!

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.

Oh my… so many cute faces!!!!

13 Shelley Noble May 11, 2009 at 1:06 pm

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

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

15 Melissa May 11, 2009 at 9:22 pm

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

16 Fran May 12, 2009 at 11:19 pm
