In April we began to believe in Spring again!  The sheep are happy with just one feeding of alfalfa [gourmet sheep food] because the grasses are leaping up and full of nutrients.  Without lambs to feed, the ewes are getting rather rotund on this lush diet.  They also have a lot of wool and I expect it to be excellent, though all the March rain makes it look stringy.  These youngsters are about 14 months old.
