Ruby Tuesday




All of these lovely ladies were basking in the late morning sun, until I approached and then several grudgingly hobbled up to come check me out. I find out when we spoke to the gentleman farmer, that the ladies are all expecting in about two weeks. This is just 'round the bend from our house, so we'll go back to check out the babies. I'm curious about their horns.





Does a touch of ruby around the nostrils count? ;-)

If you'd like to play, click on the link at the very top of the post and check out what you need to do to participate. Great hostess, nice people, beautiful and interesting photographs and...fun. My life has not been bad lately or anything, but it's been not the least bit fun! How about you? How is the beginning of your week going?

Peace and all groovy things,
Pagan Sphinx

  2. Wow, amazing horns. Are they being raised for wool or milk (cheese)?

  3. I am curious about the babies as well!

  4. I love sheep with or without horns.
    They are magnificent creatures.
    Funny that you too have about the same time of lambing as we have in Norway.
    That will make some fine lamb steaks for Easter.
    Hope Terry doesn't read this. She will never eat lamb or veil. They are too cute.
    I'm more of a farmer girl, and find them super tasty.

  5. I am embarrassed to tell you all that in my haste to starting setting up to photograph them, I did not take note of their name when the farmer was talking to WP, my fiance.

    I do know that they're raised for their fur because Mrs. Farmer does all that fun playtime stuff with wool. Some ladies have all the luck! ;-)

    Felisol: you made me laugh out loud!! I too love a little lamb now and again and rabbit...rabbit stew for Easter...yummmm...sorry! I guess I have a bit of the farmer girl in me as well! Nice to 'see' you, Ms. Felisol with emphasis on the "sol"! :-)

  6. Sphinx, they are such sweet-looking creatures. You must check out the babies and let up know how they are. Take a few pix? :) Happy Ruby Tuesday!

  11. These gals were very charming and I enjoyed photographing them. The one who is up close to the fence was very sweet and friendly - letting me pet and scratch her snout.

    Susan: :-D For the mothers' sake, I hope the babies have only little nubs, which I'm guessing is the case.

    I hope to get there this afternoon, Tuesday - it's a glorious sunny day out, after four solid days of gloom and/or rain!

    Thanks to everyone for coming by. I hope to get to your RT posts all week long!

  13. Dianne is funny - maternity ward, outdoor version.

    I love the perspective in the first photo, with that red fence and the expectant mothers looking like they are in no hurry to go anywhere.

    I like the close-ups of their faces.
