The days continue to be gray and dreary and I am really longing for some blue skys and sunshine. After talking to some friends that are dealing with the exact opposite and are heading into a drought…I am trying to be thankful for the rain.
So, for now, I will have to look for blue elsewhere…
this day, my eye caught the blue eyes in our jacob sheep. We don’t breed for blue eyes and we don’t make breeding decisions based on them, but they are very pretty when they appear. This is Maelstrom and his pretty blue eyes.
One of my favorite girls, Molalla.
Aimee has just a hint in her eyes.
As does Reno.
Avalon is a daughter of Reno and Aimee and has very similar eyes.
As mush as I like looking at their pretty blue eyes, I am really hoping to see some blue skys when I go to California this weekend.
Here is a picture from my trip last year, ah…I can feel the warmth on my skin now!
I am delivering sheep that will be catching a ride to the Maryland Sheep and Wool show. It started out as a small load and has grown into 19 sheep, 3 piglets, and 2 chickens. I will be making several stops along the way, picking up animals and dropping off animals – should be interesting!!! Hopefully I will have a lot of pictures to share with plenty of blue sky in them 🙂
Wonderful meditation on “blue”, Shannon. I hope you have a safe trip cross country!
Wow, driving across the country with a small circus in tow, loved these shots, the eyes are so beautiful.. and that blue!.. so soft.. c
