Meet the Sheep

Meet the latest additions to the farm, our own flock of sheep. 

There are actually six in total, but far be it for me to get a picture with all of them at the same time. A livestock photographer I am not.

We have five ewes (girls) and one ram (boy). And we think all of the ewes are pregnant so in a couple of months we should have a whole bunch of little baby lambs running around. Which I am pretty sure is going to be ridiculously adorable to watch.

Only two came to us with names, that one up there is Blackie, she is the youngest and most friendly. The ram is named Gentle Ben, and he is definitely the easiest to pick out of the group. Otherwise I can't really tell the other girls apart. Audrey has named and renamed them several times already which isn't making it much easier.

I'll be the first to admit that I really don't know much about sheep, luckily Bryce makes up for my lack of knowledge and knows just how to take care of them. Slowly I'll learn, but for now I just enjoy looking out the window and seeing them in the pasture. They seem pretty happy too, wandering around and munching on grass.
