Bright Morning Sun At Wild Rose Farm!
Wild Rose Farm Ewes Grazing In The Morning
We brought the ewes up to the barn this morning for a little while. Seems one of the yearlings was limping, so we had to check it out. She got her feet trimmed, but nothing was there, no footrot, so she likely stepped on something or had a thorn that worked its way out. With a shot of antibiotic to prevent infection, back she went to pasture with the rest of the flock. We'll keep an eye on her to make sure she is walking ok and recheck her if she isn't.

If you know what you're looking for, you can spot 2 notable sheep in this picture. Just under the pine tree with a full side shot is "U" ..... you can see her slightly darker color and face markings. Then the 3rd from last bright white sheep in the sun glare is #401 ..... you can see her ratty fleece with the wool break & I can just detect her small horns. Like I said, "if you know what you're looking for!". :)
