Friday Farm Fotos: Let them eat grass!


It's the day the sheep have been waiting for all winter~ time to start grazing!




No more dry, dusty hay.... 
The pasture is finally bursting with lush green grass and sweet clover.








Tiny is their unofficial flock leader when it comes to eating.
(Maybe because he is an expert on the subject?)








They follow close behind him to see what new yummy spot he has found.








Sheep are moving grazers~ they are constantly walking while they pick grass.
(Sorry for the unflattering angle, Molly...)









This picture reminds me of a bucolic scene in a painting I once saw.









This picture reminds me that I need to get the shearing blades sharpened soon....
*Sigh*


Happy Friday!

  3. I am so jealous of your green, green grass, my pastures have already turned brown and dry, going to be a long hot summer with no measurable rain until Nov/Dec coming my way.

  5. 'Mornin' Paula! Love your sheepie pics - I'm a huge fan of pastoral paintings with sheep. So soft and fluffy and soothing. I'll bet they ARE enjoying their green grass.

    Love Sandra's comment! LOL!

  10. Great pictures! The grass looks so green and beautiful. We had a couple of inches of snow yesterday. This has been the weirdest spring I can remember. I just checked my garden and it looks like most of the veggies will make it. I was worried yesterday, though. I bet you love sitting on your porch watching the sheep graze. Perfect picture. (grin)
