I can’t believe how much the pastures can change in just a couple of days. We left for the weekend on Thursday evening and the pastures were brown, we returned on Sunday evening to a beautiful carpet of green!
As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been holding the sheep off the big pastures to encourage the grass to grow…but the girls have been begging to go out there and the days have been so nice.
So, while I was feeding them, I let them out for a little bit.
The Chicory we planted is really starting to take off…
and the sheep are loving it!
‘I think that is a little too big of a bite for you Petunia.’
‘Yes, Sahara, that makes you look like a walrus…now stop playing with your food.’
Not everybody was focused on the chicory though…Veronica went for the clover.
Chevelle was stuffing her face with dried up dandelions.
While Hyacinch wanted the yellow dandelions.
Mac was going for good ol’ grass.
and Bronwen was eating thistles until she had to pose for the camera.
I’m glad they all have different tastes because there is a lot of variety out there!
We’ve had the same color change here – made more dramatic by the fact that Rick mowed the tall, dead stuff before fall so the green shows up even better!
The pastures that have had sheep on them and are eaten down are an amazing blanket of green. Such a nice change!
Beautiful and such great shots! It feels peaceful just looking at your pictures!
