Happy sheepie girls

This afternoon, I put the ewe lambs back outside. They were happy, to say the least.
After a little pushing and shoving, they started their engines and began the time trials.

Ami, in back, and her daughter, Lucy, stood and watched mostly, but I did see Ami get in one small leap. She has to remember her position as the "grande dame" of the flock.

This picture shows the girls just one second after the starter's gun went off for the next heat. They did a bunch of running and jumping since they had been cooped up for a long time. Sugar joined in and got a "10" on "standing jump with 90 degree turn in the air". She was having a good time with those ewe lambs. Pia didn't win anything except "most improved" considering that in October she broke her left back leg. She did favor it once in a while, but still could put on some speed and an occasional leap.

This is odd looking, but it is Meg in the air as she went flying across the pasture.
She won that heat.

Baby Kitty just wanted to be with the sheep even though the sheep didn't really appreciate her. They tended to butt at her, and she hissed and swatted at them.

Well, Baby Kitty decided that maybe things were safer on top of a fence post for the time being.

What happy sheep and FUN pictures!
Will they get to stay out now?

I'm so glad that Pia is back in with the flock & holding her own. I still miss her!

What a hoot that action picture of the sheep is priceless! I love the kitty on the fence post too--reminds me of my days on the farm.
