I like the first spring flowers (especially this year with our late spring)..
I like shadows….
because that means you have sunshine 🙂
The following photos are of Jacob Sheep lambs. However, my comments have absolutely nothing to do with the JSBA standard or even with any accepted standard of beauty for Jacob Sheep. Purely personal on every level here.
I like these very symmetrical spots.
I like this little teardrop marking.
I like this spooky ice blue eye in in a big black patch.
Now this boy, with his black legs and his slick black wool, has no future as a flock sire. He’s not a pretty Jacob, but….
breed standard aside, I like him. I like his slick, seal like coat, even though I don’t want to see it on my breeding stock and I like his upright “look at me attitude”. I like his funny personality. He thinks nothing of jumping in the water trough and even seems to like to swim. The trough has been modified, so his swimming days are over. Although, with his long legs, he has trouble fitting in a five gallon bucket, he still likes to sit in the feed bucket when he can. With his light, snake-like build, he manages to wiggle into the fence line hay feeder (a bull panel), walk between the panel and the fence for abit, and then out the fence on the other side – or sometimes back on the same side of the fence. He’s just exploring. We’re talking a four inch space – this guy is compressible! Pancake is not destined to be a flock sire. He’s not a breeding quality Jacob. He’s a funny lamb and very pretty if you are judging him as a lamb, rather than as a Jacob lamb. There is something about him that makes me laugh. I like him.
