Our sheep are really enjoying the backyard grass. This picture was taken from our deck. Watching and listening to our sheep has become the most relaxing part of my day.
Our sheep are Katahdin Hair Sheep. They do not require sheering, but they shed like a dog. Well, I have never really seen a dog shed like this, but you get the idea. We see large clumps of hair all over the yard. I can't wait until this sheep in the picture loses all of her hair because she looks like there might be something dreadfully wrong with her. We are noticing people slowing down when driving past our farm. Yesterday I saw one woman drive past several times really slow looking at the sheep. I may need to make a sign explaining that our sheep are suppose to look this way until they shed. Truth be told, they look a bit odd at the moment.
Baxter says the sheep are wearing him out. He is one tired puppy ready for a nap!
grace and peace,
