Ice Land

Not quite snow, but good enough for me! I dashed out to photograph Blue Belle first since I hadn't any wintery photographs of her.


After a few minutes, one of the lambs came over to us, running in a manner reminiscent of an elegant horse galloping through snow.



She looked surprised when she reached us that Blue Belle wasn't a sheep.


Of course, where one sheep goes, another follows...






Prudence looked like a wheaten loaf.



I found it amusing that all the Kerry Hill lambs stuck together.


Our little galloping friend seems to be very good at looking surprised.

One of the horned ram lambs.


Blue Belle looked a bit more lively when the quad drove past.


Miss Prudence:


The sunrise started to peek through the clouds and bathed Blue Belle in a lovely glow.


The lambs on the hill.




The freezing fog was receding from the hills.


The pet lambs are always quick to spot me. As I walked with Jess up the hill to a place suitable for photos, they followed us on the other side of the fence.



No matter what, Suckie always spots me first.


She leaves all the youngsters running to catch up.

When I went to feed the lambs, Margo didn't seem to be in the mood for nuts.


She joined the others just as Jess crept under the gate.


The sunrise caught Millie's eye beautifully.


Bob was copying Prudence's "wheaten loaf" look.


Ducky at the gate.


Little Bob found something to give him some extra height.


Honey at the gate.


Behind you! (Some puppies feeling at little left out.)




And after a freezing morning out taking photos, it was time for a nice warm cup bowl of tea!

  1. These photos are stunning! It definitely looks cold, but the photos turned out beautiful! And I love Jess's ears.

  2. Beautiful shots. Love the Kerry Hills. What is their wool like?

    1. Their wool is... fluffy? I'm no wool expert like yourself, but even with my three pets their coats are different. Rosie's wool is the shortest, and very dense, owing to her Texel blood. Margo's is the longest and not very dense and she's crossed with a Lleyn. Millie's is in the middle, and she's crossed with a Suffolk/Texel.

      I'm not sure what a pedigree's coat would be like. Next time I'm near one of our rams I can check for you. :)
