Below are some photos of the lambs and the sheep that I took recently. The lambs are really growing. The lambs that were born earlier are much larger than the later lambs. This year we used rams in the following breeds: Dorset, Polypay, Dorper, and Cheviot. If you look at their faces, you will notice that different breeds have different faces and different body conformation too.
If the temperatures keep rising, we will soon be thick into mud season. It is going to be a whopper considering how much snow has to melt. If there is a time to go away from the farm - this would be my choice. Muck, mud, brown everywhere!
At the end of this series of photos, I have included a beautiful video I found recently by photographer Ian Lawson. He documents sheep, shepherds and farmers in the Lake District of England. Spectacular scenery and colors. Enjoy everyone!
