In the landscape right now, the ewes can be tough to spot. Can you see her?
She’s among a string of ewes following a trail of their making, coming from an area we fed at previously and returning to the current bedding area for the night.
As I travelled out to feed guardian dogs I spotted their movement. We travel together for a short ways before our paths crossed.
The ewes are looking quite good as far as one can tell from appearance. Some individuals are just starting to look a little disheveled (wool is long now and beginning to get taggy). A sure sign that shearing time is approaching.
Other than the routine of sheep and dogs and walking, I've been in a creative flurry this last little while. I think it has something to do with the impending arrival of spring - it's like I'm doing a last burst of creativity before kinder weather pulls me outdoors for longer and longer stretches of the day's time.
