The Shepherd and The Sheepcote

"When dusk falls, shepherds lead their sheep to a safe place to spend the night, where wolves or other predators cannot prey on the sleeping sheep. Usually the shepherd builds a stone enclosure with a small opening and he calls the sheep one by one into the sheepcote for the night. When all the sheep are safely inside the sheepfold, he will lie down in the opening so that nothing can come in the only door to harm the sheep.

The Shepherd always protects The Sheep!"

This little guy is also sporting a summer do!  A couple of the lambs had a fever for some reason which caused a wool break and most of their wool came off but it is once again growing nicely.  This little fella is a wily guy and runs fast.  He looks like he has a lion cut hair do.

I counted and we still have (8) girls to lamb yet and I am hoping that all will be okay in that heat that we are supposed to have tomorrow.
