    DSC_0047.jpg Rolled the round bale out to the horses. Sheep are too picky and while rolled, they don't approve...lol
    Then there was a green carpet, 100% sheep approved! Who needs a red carpet when you can have a delicious green carpet?

    Anyway, after that, I let momma and boys out. They are better bonded to mom now. But clearly, momma isn't doing the best job at butt cleaning! No problem! LGDs looooove butt cleaning duty! Hahaha.

    Decided to use my long lens to catch them in a more natural state today. They met the big boys.

    Well, you know, everyone needs to have a job of their own. Some go for lofty ideals, some are butt cleaners, but all are necessary and desired.

    Beautiful pictures, thanks so very much for sharing. Good thing I don't live near you as you'd be calling the cops for me nabbing that smiling boy. (Geez just joking about the larceny part.)

    Gosh, from the look of things, you could possibly stop feeding the dogs... They each have mobile pellet dispensers that they seem to enjoy feeding from :lol::gig

    While waiting on Lolla, who seems to be even closer to lambing, here are a couple pictures of what I couldn't resist earlier....Don't tell DH.
    I'm hoping at least 2 or 3 are girls, as I am down to two adults. :(
