The lambs are growing fast; they're weaned now and enjoying all the green grass from the recent rains. They are all very curious, following me around the small pasture they are in.
Summertime farm chores keep us busy with weekly checks of the lambs for worms and biweekly for the ewes, mowing pastures before all those weeds go to seed, trimming everyone's hooves, giving the lambs their first immunizations, filling water troughs - it all gets done. The morning leading of the sheep and Holden out to pasture and shutting them in at night gives a rhythm to my days. Things can become very busy; I try to remember to admire the summertime flowers in my gardens.
