Thank-you for the unexpected photo opportunity!
Today we got an unannounced break from the Oregon-winter-like weather we're forecast to have through next weekend. So while the rest of the flock was out on pasture, I took the opportunity to lead Brava and her son out for Blake's first gentle exposure to the wide, wide world:He stuck close to mom at first, and Brava kept a sharp eye on him, too.
A stiff shot of milk helped bolster his courage to venture from mom's side:Outstanding in his field. I know; groan. But I really do think this little guy shows great potential. Nice hindquarters, and such incredibly consistent fleece from end to end and top to bottom!
Finally brave enough to confront a stick!
Will this cutie have playmates soon?
From the size of Dinah's udder, I think so!
That's it for now from . . .
