Just last week a herd of sheep showed up in the field in front of our home. They have been eating the field down. Yesterday my kids and I got to see them being moved from their field. It was quite exciting and they created a sheep traffic jam on the road lol. We then noticed that they moved the sheep to the field behind us. They didn't move far. I really enjoy watching them. I love the little things about country living! Makes me feel like a kid again. But I know it won't be long until they are moved again.

The pictures are beautiful. Reminds me of the vintage English prints I collect of sheep. How fun to have them across the way so your kids can watch them.

The sheep are beautiful and I too love to watch sheep. I grew up by a little sheep field and it was such fun to watch them. Especially the lambs in the spring. I hope the sheep get to stay and you will get to see babies.

Lisa, Maylee enjoys watching them out our sliding glass door. She has been very well behaved and stays in our yard and leaves them alone.

Barbara, that would have been so nice, but they have moved them again. We were outside when they started to round them up, so the kids got to see them up close. It was exciting. Some sheep decided to not follow and tried jumping a ditch and fell in. We got to watch them be pulled out as well. I m not sure where they took the sheep but we can no longer see them.

How wonderful to have seen this. I about cry when I see sheep because they just always go along with what they have to do. I am a goat person---ornery I guess. I can still hear our old farmer neighbor yelling WOAH sheep or something and they would come running to eat. Our neighbors in sight of our house also had sheep and we would see baby lambs there. Much sheep in my memories---and I can still hear Grandma fussin that those old sheep were by her building and smelling the place up---LOL>

Barbara, those are some nice memories! It was fun having them around. Now they are gone, I'm sad we don't have anything outside to look at. Next year we will since we are getting some animals. Bit I do hope the sheep will be back again next fall.

We had sheep neighbors again this year, but they only stayed a couple days this time and never went to the field behind us. It was still exciting to see them around but I sure wish they would have stayed longer. We were also away from the house both when they came and left so we didnít get to go outside and watch them walk down the road. It was kind of a bummer. Iíll be more on the lookout for them around this time next year.

We used to have a lot of sheep.
I miss the spring lambs running, jumping and playing the most.

Candy, itís sad because they donít stay in the fields around us so we donít see the babies. They only travel to these fields to eat it down for winter and then leave.

Winnie and Dianna, I love our view. It has really been such a blessing to live here.
