  11. Bill's sensitivity creates a photo that describes both a look and a way of life. Because you, my friend, have always the right angle.

  12. Beautiful! I remember my uncle painting the sheep in the field to mark them for certain reasons. I think the ram was always marked. Have a great weekend with Shari. Hugs-Diana

  16. I think life could be worse than being a sheep in Ireland. I'd much prefer that over dryer climates.

  17. They are really eye catching with their black feet.

  18. These must be fast sheep because they are wearing racing striped.

  22. They are cute and very wooly, but why is there a pink stripe on the one on the right?

  23. I've never seen these sheep before. I'm going to have to look them up and see what they are.

  25. They are handsome sheep! I’m struck by the “Oregon-ish” look of your background ...in this and the later post...beautiful, green, and misty! Can’t help but think I’d feel right at home (and wish I could prove it)!
