The temperatures throughout this cold spell have been in the deep -20 celsius range during the daytime. With the brisk winds we were feeling wind chills of -35 or so. The ewes still desire to travel and graze and then return to the hay feed and then travel again. While the coyotes are a greater threat when they travel, I’m glad to see the ewes out and about. They will stay in good physical shape and how keen they are to travel and eat is a behaviour we’d miss altogether if they were held indoors throughout the winter.
These are two runty lambs in this next photo; we can tell by their look and their fleece (and their obvious small size) that they’re not quite up to par with the rest of the animals in the flock.
I wasn’t expecting to see photos with such soft backdrop colors given the cold and that if feels anything but soft out there. I’ll take what I get though :-)
This is Tex and Wren making their way back after having a lookout from a hilltop.
Lastly, this photo is one where I played with black and white effects. Loading/editing photos takes a lot of time so I don’t often play with filters or effects. Typically you get what I take with the camera. As I take better photos though I find I’m more tempted to play with them. It's a lot like artwork.
