What a wonderful day I had visiting a sheep farm here in Colorado. It is spring time and the lambs were being born every day. There were 3 lambs that were only 1 day old and the rest were less than a week old. I was in love with these little lambs. They could run, jump and be as active as any adult lamb. So amazing to see them and I got to hold one! If they were to get separated from their mom, they would baaa and bleat for her. What a sight to see and hear. The farm is located in Elbert County Colorado amongst rolling hills at the edge of the plains. These are a rare breed of sheep that come from Scotland. They are smaller than your typical sheep and have very find wool. The drive to the farm was beautiful with amazing Colorado vistas – old barns in all sorts of colors, pastures with horses, cows and llamas and on this special day beautiful cloud formations. First, I got to capture the rams in their own pen. They were a little afraid of being the center of attention and would hide back in their barn. Then they would get brave and poke their heads in the doorway. What a laugh they were. ewe with 2 of her lambs Then onto the ewes who hadn’t given birth yet. They got let out to pasture and were a little afraid as well. The next barn held the nursery with the day old lambs and their moms. Around the bend from them and kept separately were the “older” lambs and their moms. They were afraid as well, but eventually didn’t mind the photos so much. The lambs were precious though and so active. I even got to see them enjoying mom’s milk. What an amazing day! the rams!
