Mid-winter, ewes headed home.  Normally, the sheep dog will round them up and push them to their night time corral.  After many months, the sheep decided, “we don’t need no stinking sheep dog” and they come home by themselves.

About half of my sheep are natural shredders.  They will shed their winter wool by early Spring.  The middle ewe represents one of those shredders.  The animal on the left is what we call a “woolie”.  They do not shed and thus get a trip to Winnemucca to get a professional sheering.

This is part of the spring lambing crop.  These little guys are about 1.5 months old.
