YES ~ I still have SHEEP...

"Bluff Country Eureka"

I do realize that I have not posted much about my sheep since half of my flock left for it's new home in Maryland.

Eureka and Zorro


It's been so hot and miserable that the neither the sheep nor I feel like taking pictures! I'm gonna rectify that ~ real soon!

But not tonight. Tonight I'm tired and it's past my bedtime. I'm working this weekend so have to get up early. As soon as I got home from work tonight, I changed clothes and hopped on the riding mower. I got the top of the ewes pasture mowed and my front yard. I love how nice things look when they're all neat and even and freshly mowed!

I did pick up the grass clippings from last night, to save for hay this winter. The "Frugal Shepherd" lives on!

Then, I spent 45 minutes sitting in Katie's swing, in my backyard. No wonder she loves sitting out there so much!!! It is SO peaceful and beautiful and restful! I seriously considered sleeping in my backyard! (there are NO mosquitos!)

Maybe another night...

Next week, I'm going to start halter lessons with my two "chosen girls": Flash Dance and Dazzle. THAT should be fun and maybe even worth reading about...

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!


  1. Nancy, how do you store your grass clippings? It is an interesting idea. And your photos of Hunter were very funny! It serves him right! I bet he will not do that again...especially if you have a camera in hand to document his humbling.

    Hi Nancy, I'm glad that you took time to sit in Katie's swing and soak in all of the beauty!!! You just gave me the inspiration to create a special "sitting place" in my yard to relax, appreciate, unwind and count my blessings. Thanks lady! Hope you are having a good weekend!

  3. Even I, as much as I love to see the menagerie, was wondering where the sheep had gone to! Good to see a few of the girls again, i especially liked the one of zaria's head in the grass, and that last little ewe lamb is really pretty!
