Ladies and Bob

The weather forecast was for snow. I had the camera charged up, a bunch of lenses in my camera bag, went outside and... oh. There was no snow at all. Since I had everything ready for a morning of shooting, I took the camera with me when I was feeding the lambs. Ducky met me at the gate.


Honey photobombed.


Curious Bob.


It's great to see that Honey and Ducky are such good friends - when Ducky first joined the flock, Honey was very mean to her. And for a sheep being mean means lots of headbutting.

My favourite photo of Bob so far.


Millie:

Suckie and Rosie returning from licking the trough clean.


Gorgeous Rosie.


Busy taking photos of Rosie, I turned around to where Bob used to be only to find he wasn't there. I looked down and he was sniffing my jeans.


He had a very important job to do: protecting his girls from a scary pair of dogs. He puffed up his chest and stood between the dogs and his girls (which on this occasion included myself).



For a lamb who only arrived just over a month ago, and wasn't even raised on a bottle, Bob sniffing my hand and protecting me from the dogs was a big thing. Such a brave boy.


Millie is much nicer to the dogs.


One last look at lovely Bob before I left. There may have been no snow, but it was still pretty cold.


Faithful Suckie followed me to the gate. It was because she loves me, not because she hoped I would give her some food.
