Apparently these sheep have been scanned to see if they are pregnant and are marked with a different colour, indicating which will give birth at different times. The farmer can then bring in the appropriate coloured sheep to the safety of the barns and keep a close eye on them.

My first outing with my camera for a month due to lack of motivation and poor weather. Less than ideal weather today but it was good to be out again.

Got to be a winner from me for the cheeky Magpie shot 😀
Thanks Phil. It was sat on a post for a while I got some shots, then I moved a little closer and it flew off and landed on the sheep... just had to get one of that as I’ve never seen it before!

The Big Horn, Old Ram in Arizona. These sheep are large, up to 500 pounds. I call him "Rocky":)

It looks like it's making itself very comfy. I should imagine it is a lot warmer there than a post 😀

You'll have to pay us a visit guys.
The sheep in the field behind us regularly have Magpies land on them.
The birds pick off insects and other bits and even hop onto the sheep's head.
It's only when their beaks get a bit close to the eye, that a flick of the sheep's ears tells them to fly off.
I've got a few photos but the IQ is awful, so I won't show them on here.

A few sheep shots from the last three weeks rambles around the Lancashire countryside.

I made a deal with myself to not take any photos of sheep as I have been taking too many recently... needless to say the deal was well and truly broken!

These sheep have got it a lot easier down here in South West Wales, than @CD77 's hardy souls in the North of England.

That fourth shot (of the Hardwick sheep) is absolutely outstanding Chris.
I nearly bought a Hardwick knitted pullover years ago when we were in the Lake District -
until I realised how itchy it would be on my sensitive skin. :eek-31: :rolleyes: :laugh:

Thanks Brian.

I’ve one question on the jumper, how did the Herdwick hold the needles to do the knitting? 🤣🤣🤣
