Hasta la vista, bucks

10 Feb

Time flies when you’re having fun. It seems like only yesterday that we were hauling the rams out to the ewes, in order to expedite the birth of lambs in spring. After seven weeks with the ewes, it is time for the bucks to go back to a long stretch of bachelorhood. As Pepe told them as we loaded them into the trailer, “Hasta la vista…See you next year!”

    I loved these pics, the back ground of each showed the beauty of your land. The babies are growing up so fast as I watch them grow on FB.

    Fun post! Don’t know much about sheep. What is the red on their backs?
