The yearling ewes are spending their time getting fat and sassy, awaiting their new roles as breeding ewes come fall. For now, they are carefree and full of teenage fun. They observe all the excitement going on in the adjoining pasture, and sometimes they just can’t help but join in when the lambs start their running games.
It’s very entertaining to watch them running… bucking… kicking their heels… soaring through the air. Then, almost as quickly as it begins… there they are again standing at the fence, once again observing life in the adjoining pasture, just as if nothing had happened. This group of young ladies are growing out very well, and are really quite beautiful. They are the future of the flock.
