This afternoon, the sun finally managed to push its way through the clouds and shine for a few hours. I took Thabo and Peaches out for a walk, to check on the new lambs that were born in bitter weather between Christmas and New Year. I can't imagine why sheep lamb in the middle of winter but they do.

I took along my sketchpad, and arrived in time to see Antoine, the old refugee (from the Spanish Civil War) pitching hay into the sheep manger. It made a nice sketch.

Oh, I love these sheep. 8-] I'm a weaver and a printmaker and sheep are one of my favorite subjects. Really nice blog.
