Meet The Gang

Yesterday was the first day out for the latest two, Ellen and Portia. They weren't too sure about coming out of the barn without their mom. She kept checking back inside the stall to make sure some goodies didn't magically appear.

Ellen is the bolder of the two.

I let them all out of the pen. The ewes immediately went to munching while the lambs had to check out the newbies.

They were being a little shy so the others went to see what their moms were doing. Clyde wants to play.

Baby has always been a bit of a loner and tends to keep to herself. Here her babies are getting the hang of having some room to roam. Look in the background at the upper right corner, by the pipe sprinkler.

I don't know which one this is, but he's a leaper!

And look here. Gracie has already lost her tail! Probably from those rough housing boys.

Ellen, meet Gracie.

After an afternoon of running and leaping and gamboling, it's time for rest.

I want to come see you. I want to play lamb photographer too. I am surrounded by farms here that have lambs but it would be sooooo much more fun to photograph yours with YOU! TISK. Dang blog friendships! haha
They are beautiful. It's easy to see why you do what you do. I have really enjoyed the photos and the leaping one is hilarious!
A friend of mine's sons raise sheep for 4H and I am thinking they probably have a bunch of lambs right now, I need to give her a call and get up there before they get too big. They live at the top of the county and it's not real close or I would just drop by, but I would love to photograph them while they are little. Ideally I would like to take The Girl up in a pretty little white dress and get some shots of she and a lamb or so running in a field. I can envision it...
Your photos make me smile :)
