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!"

Moms and kids (lambs)

Her is one of the Shetland mamas with her twins.  She is such a good mama.  They all headed down for grass one day and after a few minutes the lamb races were on and all babies came racing back up into the yard where they commenced to hang around and jump in the feeders.  While I was watching the antics, mama came galloping into the yard let out a quick short bleat and those babies fell in line as mama turned on a dime and headed back to grass with the lambs in her wake.  Mamas are the same everywhere!  "You two are out of my sight for a minute and off you come with me and behave yourselves!" 

Those kids are just always horsing  (should be sheeping) around!  Let's all be safe and have fun on the Fourth!
