Mothers and Daughters

One month from breeding time and look at Avalon (white), she is almost as big as her mother Kia.

Here is first time mother Gardenia (left) and Jeepers. Jeepers gave birth to twins last year. Since the weather was nice recently I broke out the electric netting again and let the girls graze on the grass and leaves in the yard.

Azalia is Gardenia's daughter, she is a plump one and is bigger than all the other ewes except for her mother.

Alma is a product of Jeepers and Kilarney, she is the smallest of all our sheep.

Kia and Ava, these two are smart and wary. All the sheep just love leaves, unfortunately I think I'm still going to have to rake.


  1. Avalon and Kia look like two peas in a pod!

  2. The goats were trying to help me with some yard work too. I came home and found about 50 of them in the yard. Silly goats!

  3. I love the sight of sheep grazing.

  4. I didn't know they liked leaves. It's funny how you learn the most simple, yet important things while blogging!

    They are beautiful creatures indeed.


  5. Autumn - They both have the same aloof attitude.

    Teresa - Goats always provide their own special version of help!

    Kim - I find it so relaxing.

    Lana - I will soon be bagging up some leaves for mid-winter treats!
