The sunny side of spring shepherding

Yesterday was a gorgeous bright spring day. The sky was intensely blue, the hills were soft spring green, the birds were chittering and the sheep were enjoying perfect weather.
We sheared the last of the yearlings and the last angora goat. The last lamb of the season was born healthy and easy.
A perfect day on Havencroft Farm.

Beautiful four-horned Hester's eyes are as blue as the spring sky.

Yearling Helen had this exquisite little ram lamb Sunday morning. He's the last lamb of 2013.

Nilly is enjoying the sun now that her winter coat is off.
Lucious mohair! We sheared the last of the angora goats this weekend. Gamma Rae's gun metal gray fleece inspired a felting project.
