A Little Evening Walk with the Sheep…

Victoria and Madeline walking their 4-H fair lambs every evening…

Most of the time they have a little shadow…

Up and down the big hill, it helps exercise the lambs and builds their muscles…it helps exercise the girls too!  ;0)

Then they practice setting them up…

And getting them to brace…IMG_1974

Hard to believe we have fair lambs already.   I don’t even want to think forward to fair which means fall is just right around the corner but I’m sure it will be here sooner than I am ready for it…

Falling…

Everyone seems to be enjoying the snowy weather we’ve had.

The sheep and dogs seem to do better in the cold than in the heat, which especially make sense with our Icelandic sheep.

Despite having a nice warm, straw lined barn to snuggle in, Dugur prefers to hang out with the sheep.

Same thing with Thor, he found out in the pasture rather than in the straw filled sheds he shares with the rams.

The vibrant colors of fall were all around us until this past weekend when we had a severe weather alert.  While we didn’t receive any snow, we did have high winds that pretty much disrobed the trees of their glorious colors.  😦  I’m afraid the long  winter months are just around the corner.  I always look forward to winter and snow, I do really enjoy the cool, crisp mornings and warm afternoons of autumn.  The colors are a bonus!
