This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday finds are from my Nebraska trip. Mom’s sheep pen gave me some good photo opportunities.
Sheep think it’s always “time to eat.” These girls get fed morning and evening. They always come running when someone rattles a bucket.
Mom is getting ready to turn her first lamb family out of the lambing pen. She is also anxiously waiting more babies.
Sheep are usually lambed in small pens called “jugs.” When Mom knows everyone is ok she turns the family into a bigger community pen. The community pen will have 3-5 families and helps the lambs get acclimated before being turned out to the general population.
These twins are not quite ready for playtime. Mom says they like to bounce around and buck.
Riley is what sweet dreams are made of! Mom’s dog is sweet and he loves to sleep on the couch and dream. Every once in a while Mom has to give him a scrub-a-dub after he helps in the sheep pen.
Riley likes to ride on the 4-wheeler, but is afraid of cattle. Mom was surprised I could get a good shot. Riley was shaking so bad while we fed bulls she though it was impossible.
On a special note, I must wish Mom a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Visiting Mom’s Sheep Pen gives me an excuse to play with lambs, help Mom with chores and daydream about good memories. At the end of the day I can give Riley a good belly rub and be spoiled with Mom’s good cookin!
