Local Farm

 Sheep inside fencing at a local farm

It was a drizzly, overcast day when we stopped at a local produce stand. This time of year the farm sells pumpkins and squashes plus keeps a fenced in area where kids can see farm animals closeup.

Two sheep munching grass

Because of the drizzle, it was quiet. It was just me and the animals. The sheep paid very little attention to me but..

 Three sheep, one goat and the rear end of a pony

wait! One goat and one sheep followed my every move.

Sheep and some chickens

The chickens weren't impressed with me at all!

I am linking to Saturday Critters HERE.

Those sheep are sooo ready for winter, just look at their gorgeous wooly jumpers :) The light is perfect in these rural images EG.

I love the colors in these pictures! Especially the last one. I find sheep to be rather dumb, really! They seem to have no curiosity at all. They really DO need a shepherd.

RedPat said...

They look like such gentle creatures! Wonderful fall colours you have for this weekend!

Malyss said...

Sheeps are funny , they 're always worrying and always want to know what's happening . Great pictures !

Lowell said...

"Oh dear. She's taking so many pictures and I haven't had time to get my hair cut. I'm a mess! Maybe folks will look at those dumb chickens and not notice me" she said sheepishly.

Nice photos of the sheep. It's always fun to commune with animals.

Lois said...

They are so cute! You certainly were not pulling anything over on that goat and sheep. They are keeping an eye on you!

Stephanie said...

Fabulous shots! Love the critters.

Rose said...

My eyes are drawn the the background in that last shot! The color there has to be outstanding!

Felicia said...

cute little fellows.

Beautiful shots, I'm a city guy but I like checking out goats, sheep, chickens, cows, horses and such.

Every time I think of sheep and fences and pens, I think of the movie Babe. Last evening my husband and I watched 'The Amazing Race' on TV and while the participants were in Scotland, they were challenged to corral sheep through gates and into a pen - never seen such jumping sheep except in cartoons.

Still thinking 'Babe'. :)

Chandra said...

What a lovely set of photos of my sheep and chickens!
I showed these photos to my Old English Sheep Dog and he enjoyed them also.

Peace :)

Janet said...
