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!"

Lovely Icelandic Sheep for Sale

I cannot believe how much this bunch has grown in the last week and they are not the oldest ones. The feeder is not a problem for this long legged Icelandic ram.  He is such a "looker" and he is for sale along with a few others.  Much too pretty to be lamb chops!

This is my darling Pansy the youngest of the triplets.  Love the baby curls! She is going to be horned just like her mama.
Stay tuned for more cute lamb pictures in the next few days as we are looking for good homes for several ewes and their lambs.
