I like to spend LOTS of time with my bred ewes as lambing time approaches. I want them very friendly and comfortable with me close by and handling them. Two of my girls who have remained somewhat reserved, right up 'till the past few days are
(Flash Flood X Paco)
And BLUFF COUNTRY DESTINY
(Alice X Windswept Bravo)
After many hours and days of sitting and petting and scratching and Animal Crackers, Godiva & Destiny have finally decided that they like and trust me.
In fact, yesterday, I managed to get ALL of the burdock out of Godiva's fleece
and quite a bit out of Destiny.
(She's still not 100% sure that I should be able to pull on her fleece)
But she LOVES me!
EXERCISE is very important for bred ewes and my lovely Bellamica enjoys helping out in that department...

ZODIAK finds a cool spot to enjoy the show...
"Those girls are getting rather FAT, Mom..."
That they are, Dreamer. That they are!
