It has been nearly a year since our sheep came home, and I love them more every day! Here is Storm, one of Raphaela’s lambs from this April.
And her twin sister, Rhapsody.
It’s so hard to get photos of the lambs from a moderate distance… they are either very far away or too close up! But I will keep trying. Below are (left to right) Ramona, Tank, and Dozer.
Belle and Raphaela are recovering well from their neck wounds. They look a little bruised here, but the discoloration is only from the treatments sprayed on the wounds.
If you’ve been following the state of my garden, well, the deer finally found the corn. So the damaged stalks got tossed into the pasture, which the sheep loved, of course! Cornelius was a bit greedy and got most of it.
Pippin is always interested in the sheep, though usually from a safe distance. Cornelius, likewise, is interested in Pippin. Given the chance, he’ll head-butt him, though, so they stay on opposite sides of the fence.
Royal, on the other hand, is a bit less of a threat and Pippin gets to be a little closer if he wants.
Speaking of getting close, here is Fleur, one of Belle’s daughters. She is such a beauty! Sadly we lost her twin, Maeva, so we now have 14 sheep in total.
