What is the question?
1) What is going on with the Boulderneigh flock? The answer blowin' in the wind is plaintive lamb voices and occasional ewe replies. Yes, it's high time those big boys got weaned! (I left little Bloomers with the ewes to help Annabelle dry off more gradually.) Bing and Bittersweet are locked up in the fold today, where their cries aren't quite as obnoxiously loud.
2) What is going on with the shepherd's eyes and nose? The answer blowin' in the wind is pollen. My allergies were blessedly slow to start this spring, but my immune system is in full-blown defense mode now. Sniff. Rub. Ah-CHOOO!
3) What is the condition of our little riding arena? The answer blowin' in the wind is dust. Larry, my tack and I are coated with a fine layer of it after every schooling session these days. That sand dries out quickly once it stops raining.
Other signs of the season are more pleasant. We've had a few strawberries and red raspberries to tempt our tastebuds, and other fruit is showing promise of good things to come.
