This time of year

These are the ewes that are left at our farm.    There are three adults and four lambs from this year.    All have polled genetics.    The three adults will be bred this year, and the four lambs will just have to wait another year.    They are in their new pasture behind the house and right in front of the rams pasture.    It was lawn a few days ago, but it is good grass that I can water every night to save on the small amount of hay that we have for them.    The trees, in their glory, provide a fine background for this idyllic scene.

This totally expresses my joy in this season of the year.   As the song says............"Who could ask for anything more?"

Great photo, so peaceful with the sheep laying in the shade on the green grass.

Can't wait til I have green grass again, will be taking lots of pictures.

That patch of grass is only lush like that because I ran the sprinkler there. If you look carefully, you can see the boy's pasture in the background with hardly any green.
