It’s been foggy in the Sacramento Valley, but this last few days we have been just west of the fog. It was here this morning but is burning off.
The sheep greeted me as I went out this morning.
See the 3 sheep in the middle of this photo? Paulette is the farthest right of those three. We did preg checks on her and the other 2 sheep who are the ewes I breed in February to lamb at State Fair in July. When we brought her in I thought that she had quite a belly for an open ewe. She’s pregnant with triplets. No State Fair for her this year. Faulkner had got through the fence a couple of months ago and although I gave her an injectable form of the “morning-after” pill I guess it didn’t work. So those are three little BFL/Jacob lambs she’s carrying.
Why is Amaryllis standing here when everyone else is in the pasture? Those of you that know the flock will probably guess.
Because that’s where Stephanie is.
Here are the rams. In the foreground left to right: Ruby Peak Linden, Meridian Clapton (lambs)
Center: Meridian Fogerty (lamb)
Background front to back: Mud Ranch’s Hudson, Sweetgrass Clint, Puddleduck Sullivan (lamb).
This is Faulkner and his Jacob buddy, Jerry.
And, of course, Rusty is out here with me–staring at shadows.
