Finally No Rain

We have been deluged with 12 straight days of rain and finally today it stopped for a few hours and the sun briefly came out.  The sheep have been cooped up in the barn and have been none too happy about it either.  Last week they were outside running around eating grass and now they have to be content with hay.  The youngest came down with pneumonia but is recovering nicely.  He just isn't very thirsty.  He is mostly a bottle lamb, so I need to get out some more nutri drench and get his tummy feeling better again. Gil was out briefly with the camera and took some great shots.  The rest of the lambs are doing great and the bfl crosses are simply gorgeous.  What a difference from last year's problems.  Enjoy the picks.
