but it was much better than the deluge of rain we have been enduring the last couple of days.
Our pastures have turned into a wetland and the local waterfowl have been enjoying the accommodations!
I think the sheep enjoyed the little bit of snow we got because it was accompanied by just a touch of sun. It was a very welcome sight!
The bellies are really starting to show now and the girls are kicking up their heels a little less and spending more time in the barn. Much to their disappointment, I make them leave the barn while I feed. I assure them that exercise is good for everyone!!!
Most of the girls go along without a complaint…but there are a few…
that have to tell me what they really think…
poor Rae-Ann really wanted to be heard this afternoon. She has always been a vocal girl and today was no exception. Soon they were all let back in the barn and started chowing down on dinner.
It was also time for Queenie to take her rightful place – her throne. She is not shy about telling all of the other sheep that they are not allowed on her throne and she is very good at telling the llama to find somewhere else to eat. Another one of those cases where the name really fits the animal. I am going to have to draw the line if she requests a nursemaid when her lamb(s) arrive next week 😉
I mentioned starting with a skiff of snow yesterday and a reader from MN had never seen or heard the term before! I told her that’s because snow in MN is measured in FEET….
LOL… Queenie. Yep, a girl who knows what she wants. 🙂 I love the new look here Shannon! Your banner is great too… I like the fleece in the background. Nice touch. 🙂
No, I don’t suppose they see skiff’s of snow in MN 😉
Thanks Joan! It has been on my to do list, but I was having trouble finding a theme I liked. Queenie is a funny girl 🙂
I have to admit to being thrown by the title. I’ve had a few skiffs, but they were little boats.
Your girls are looking close – what an exciting time of year!!
LOL, skiff must be “westerner talk.” 😉
