Spring Lambs

Lamb Chops!

Further down the canyon a neighbor raises sheep. The lambs arrived early in February, and are now enjoying themselves, frisking around their mothers. Yes, Virginia, lambs do gambol.

These are Suffolks, a primarily meat breed, as their wool is too short to earn the highest ratings. There are several other sheep raisers in the area, some of whom aim for the specialized wool market, selling primarily to hand spinners.
