I went out this morning and decided to follow the sheep trail through some of the pasture. Beats walking in the tall grass. There are several beaten paths they have created over the years. Winding trails that give away their favorite hang out spots.
I didn't find them amongst the Mulberry trees. That is where we usually find them mid day when the sun is up and the heat is on.
I did find them in the northwest pasture lounging around and chewing their cud. I think they are feeling as gloomy as the weather. Most of them didn't budge from their spots.
I was surprised to find a Tunis ewe solo. That doesn't happen very often.
This lamb was falling asleep. I love it when they start to doze off and their head starts tilting back. They usually get jarred awake when they start to fall over.
This trail leads to the Rock Pile...
What a surprise, no sheep just goats!
The ground is very wet and there is standing water from all of the rains we have had. Goats do not like water but they love trees and rocks!
Reason #1 you never would want a goat in your orchard!
Heading back to the house, I find the rest of the Tunis laying low...
Who says you can't graze laying down?
The trail up to the barn and back to the house. I find a few sheep grazing along the way.
I am hoping for a few sunny days to dry things out. I think the sheep and goats would appreciate it as well. I am feeling like the Tunis look.... just a little gloomy!
