Here are a few photos from my walk yesterday. I found out that the area directly across from me, and all the way East, is closed to ... well ... everything. I walked West and found a legal entry to the lake about 1/4 mile up the road. Anyway, on my walk, I saw a hawk. Not sure what kind, but if I had to guess, I'd say it was a Swainson's. (Colleen just corrected me ... it's a juvenile red-tail ... )
I know there are people who see a lot of hawks and don't think much of it, and probably think I'm crazy because I get all excited every time I see one. I love it. I love watching them soar and wish I could do that myself. They are majestic to me. I wish I knew more about them to readily identify them properly, but I'll get it eventually. I need to get myself a good bird book. I don't know where my little one went in the move.
I went up to Janie's the feed all the animals. A few lousy pics of a really cute puppy. (All of these photos were taken while I was on the phone. How lazy, eh?)
Thankfully her ears didn't come up. She would have looked like this. [Mustering up the best fake laugh I can manage.]
I think we had a new lamb, which now actually made 8. I noticed the black headed Dorpers don't twin much. Here's what I saw when I first walked over there. I lowered my voice to my friend that I was still talking to and started to creep over.
It wasn't until I got up behind them and very close to them that one stood up.
Here's Venus and Serena.
As soon as it gets light out, I need to go check on this ewe. I believe this is the ewe that attempted to have triplets last year. I hope she's okay.
This was the first lamb born this season. Isn't he adorable? I love his markings.
This one has interesting markings, too. This was is a ewe lamb.
Colleen is headed down on Wednesday. I am going to work on getting the bathroom back in functioning order now that it's "done" being painted. I have a lot of little things to screw back on the wall and a little bit of paint to touch up. Would also like to get my dog run done today too.
We'll see ...
