Although the sun was shining today, it was still a cool 40 degrees. Time to get the sheep out for a stretch. The little ones enjoy running around.
While feeding this evening, I caught these two guys hanging out with their dad. They had slipped out of their pen.
The little ones enjoy each other's company
The last few days have brought on a few more inches of snow and a few more mouths to feed. There are but two more sheep to lamb this round, and our additions to the farm will be slowed for a few months. We have been very fortunate to have several sets of twins and more females than males. The little ones adapt to their new world very quickly and grow so fast. They play with each other, especially when their mothers are busy eating at the feeder. They truly act like kids.
