Springtime is busy on our local farms.  Maple sugaring is winding down, and attention turns to livestock:

Dim-witted sheep stand around shorn and shivering in their barnyard Johnnies, having just been swindled out of their warm winter coats:

…yeah, I’m talkin ’bout you!

…while their distant cousins remain aloof and above it all:

Most of the farm ponds have iced out, though the grass is still just vaguely green:

…and somebody has been using the barbed wire fence for a scratching spot:

…perhaps this Scottish Highlander and her calf?

I mean, I’m totally ok with that, Yes Ma’am, no problems here…

All in all, a nice time of year in these parts:

I’m still in JPEG mode, so pardon any appreciable lack of photo quality.

They’re calling for rain the next few days, so I was glad to snag these shots today.
