sheep

You don't think about wool and where it comes from until you come around a corner and see this.

Hi Betty! ~~ Thank you for showing us all of those sheep penned up. Would that be for the night, every night or just on special occasion like vacinations, marking, shearing, getting ready for market, etc?

Your post reminded me of the bearded fellow with his dog we talked with on Mt. Victoria. He was a New Zealand sheep shearer, retired I think. We learned a lot from our enjoyable convsation with him.

We have a lot of cows and sheep here in NZ. At one point, it was said that there were 9 sheep for every person here, but that has declined to about 5 per person.

Jim, they are penned for something special, I would think shearing but it seems a bit late for that. Otherwise, they would be out on a hillside grazing.

Yes, indeed - a lotta sheep! Though I saw many last week in North Wales,UK, famed for its Welsh lamb!

Great pics and post!

Have a great Alphabe-Thursday and weekend too,

That is a LOT of sheep. Somehow it doesn't look as sad to me as the cattleyards we see around the west over here.
