Sunny Sheep

The new sheep have been enjoying these past few days of warm temps and sunny skies.
They love to sleep in the sun. The lambs snuggle up close to their mom and use her as a windbreak.
In the photo above you can see Chloe (front left) in her hugely pregnant self. Directly behind Chloe is Moose who is also pregnant, but not as large. Their udder development seems to be going at about the same rate so I think they will lamb around the same time. The sheep on the right is Leda. She is the leader of the pack and is always the first to check us out when we get anywhere near their pen. She should be bred too, but I have no idea when she might lamb. Probably on the coldest snowiest night in February.

The whole flock!
