Sheep Come Visiting!

Tim's flock of forty one ewes arrived a couple of days ago.  They are Border Leister, North Country Cheviots, Blue Face Leister crosses, with a Dorper and I'm not sure what, included in the mix.
We had fun with this following photo of a sheep with huge ears. Tim likes to breed for big ears!

The sepia tones give this photo an "Old West" ambiance.
Here is Bonnie, our Blue Face Leister/ Border Leister cross..............She is the sheep in the middle with Little Mac on her left, cleaning the grain from her luscious fleece.

The flock is here for a couple of weeks to recuperate from lambing and weaning this past spring.
We will certainly enjoy them while they visit!
