Perspective

When you look UP, it's summer:

When you look DOWN, it's fall:

When you look IN, it's wool!
That's so-soft Sarai's incredible crimp at last rib mid-side, taken when I changed her coat (to a D) the other day. She's my BSF (best sheep friend); we'll see if she still feels that way after tonight! The breeding girls will get CIDRs then, followed in two weeks by a short tryst with Bachelors 1, 2 or 3. Short trysts are a definite selling point for using CIDRs here; I have limited options for keeping many groups of sheep separate during our long, wet, muddy season - which usually begins around the start of breeding season. Now to pencil out who's going where and with whom for a few short days....

That's it for today from . . .

You post the loveliest pictures!

Green leaves, dry leaves, or FLEECE, Becky? (-;

What a nice compliment, Lael; thank-you!

that fleece is really something. It's so crimpy that I bet if she flopped on her side, she would bounce like a superball! :)

Lael is right, I always look forward to your pictures.
Oh, and that fleece, YUMMMMMMMYYYY!

Give Sarai a scritch for me! (Never mind that she was shy of me.)
And, I'm sort of working on Ed about the two boys. Have to work slow and let the idea plant in his mind without pushing.

Thank-you, Michaele and Kelly!

Denise, she is super crimpy, but also super-soft, so her fleece might cushion her fall but it would not make her bounce. (-:

Wanda, I had no idea that was a possibility!!! I understand about letting the idea be the DH's, but I can pray, right?
