Delaney is the only one who has been brave enough to venture out with a camera.
The last few days have been cold enough even the woolly ewes have been hiding behind the barn, out of the wind to keep warm. I have left the gate open so they can come and go as they please.
Here is Ethel, leading the way back out to pasture. She is our oldest ewe, and is considered the Matron of the flock.
They are working their way around to the Round Bale of Hay that is out. We have been feeding square bales in the barnyard as well, so they don't have to venture out if they don't want to. But they get restless behind the barn, so they usually make at least one trip to the pasture each day.
Lucy and Ethel are often together. These two are a favorite. They were labeled trouble makers last winter, after they would "escape" and find their way into the barn, always knee deep in hay, making a mess of everything. This year they have grown up a little and stay with the rest of the flock. They are having their first lambs this year, we are excited about that.
The poor Romney's have such short legs. They manage to get around, I am not quite sure how. I have wondered on more than one occasion if they were going to venture out too far, and get themselves stuck in the snow.But they have managed to get where they want to go.
Looking forward to March....
