We’ve new neighbours bouncing around in the field next door.
They are as playful as spring lambs should be, doing their level best to do jumps with vertical take off; Tom commented ‘it’s just as well fully grown sheep don’t bounce around like that; the countryside would be mayhem’.
I always think their fleeces look two sizes too big for them at this age, a bit like the jumpers of school kids returning for the Autumn term.
I took these photos last week, when the sun shone, briefly.
This evening we have a weather warning for high winds, and rain is lashing down.The lambs have taken shelter in the lea of the walls, the ewes keep on with their relentless grazing, backs to the driving rain. There are mouths to feed.
