Over The Neighbor’s Fence

Nothing says spring like baby animals running around the place!  The neighbors have been lambing; last week I saw that they moved the families (a ewe and her babies) across the road. 

It’s just a little tricky taking pictures of range sheep.  They easily run off at the presence of a crazy camera lady and/or strange noises.  Lucky for me, my camera has an excellent zoom.

On the other side of the road I noticed these girls grazing.

Sounds like the Rancher is ready to start farming.  It’s still early to be farming here.  On the other hand, the ground is ready and it’s dry.  Our hope is to get the oats in before the cows start calving heavy.  Maybe we can catch some nice rains soon.

Are you calving, lambing and/or farming?  What do you have going on this weekend?

  3. Gina B. says:

    We are finishing up calving, waiting for the temps to warm up and the grass to grow so we can get to summer pastures!

    • Robyn says:

      I kind of wonder if we won’t be going to grass a little early. It was so late last year due to the cold wet spring.

  14. Good capture on the lambs, they are adorable. Especially love that fence shot, where the sheep are out of focus. Awesome, Robyn!

    Thank you for sharing at Your Sunday Best. :)

    • Robyn says:

      Thank You, Nancy. I like that shot too. As you can tell, my auto focus picked up on the grass and fence. I thought is showed a neat perspective.

  15. Deborah says:

    no ranching, no farming, but I’ll soon be joining my friends at the ranch for branding!

    Great shots!

  16. Pat says:

    Love these shots! The lambs are so sweet.

  17. Beautiful captures, Robyn! Enjoying the weekend but it is WINDY outside today.

    • Robyn says:

      Today was terrible for wind. I am not sure where I got my current cold, but the dirt and wind do not help my cough. It is really dry and we need rain.

  18. These are great shots of the little guys. Hope your weather holds steady so you can get some planting done. Ours turned cold again and everything has slowed down.

  19. Those little lambs are SO adorable! I love your cattle shots… they are such curious creatures, don’t you agree?? Thank you Robyn for sharing on Weekly Top Shot, I love that you come by each week!

    Fantastic photos I love baby lambs they are so cute. It is dry here too our cows and calves are eating the grass up as fast as it grows we do not usually let them on pasture till May 24 but the grass is quite long already. They enjoy it and I love watching them from my window. Happy calving. B

    • Robyn says:

      Pray for rain! After yesterday and today we will need it even more. The wind has been terrible. I think it’s blowing harder this morning than it did yesterday. It is so dirty.
