Grazing Sheep in Colorado

I never guessed when I started my day out that I would stumble upon grazing sheep on a dirt road in Colorado heading home from a hike!  As I read the sign at the trailhead, it warned of possible sheep grazing and to keep your dog close just in case.  Well, I completed the hike and never saw any sheep.  I was a little disappointed, but not surprised by any means.  Low and behold I’m on the way back to town and bam there are the sheep!  This time I was surprised and quite happy actually.  I really enjoyed listening to the baahing and seeing the cute sheep among the aspen and wildflowers.  I couldn’t pass up a photo opp of these cute faces!  Have you ever seen a herd – cows or sheep – on a trail or back road in Colorado and been surprised? sheep sheep eating
