There have been some beautiful days to get out into the fields and take some great photos of the animals. Last week, I pulled over at the Martin tract and captured both the sheep the pigs. There were so many good angles that I have to post the pigs separately!
Of course Bea came right out. And as you can see below, these vicious guard dogs are always on red alert. After a good scratch and some TLC, that is.
Directly following all the niceties, she went back to her station to resume surveying the sheep.
We now have a mixed bag of sheep, trying to get the animals a little bigger. So, there are some hair sheep and some wool sheep all mixed in.
They were enjoying the day, and the shade…
Miss Bea is what we call ‘full-figured’ right now. And I think this has contributed to the matting of her fur. Right now she looks like I did when I was 6 years old and tried to cut my own hair: a little here, a little there… Brett and Orlando have been trying to keep on top of her matting, but Bea’s coif has been a summer-long struggle. But she doesn’t seem to mind her present ‘do!
