Otterbein Open Barn Lambs










Just a few pictures of the Otterbein`s open barn todaythey are located in Newburg & if you get out our way,it is going on again next Sat.,the 13th.They had many lambs from a flock of sheep that is rare called East Friesian.They milk the sheep.There was 1 black sheep amongst them.The lambs liked to lie on top of their mom`s.The man we spoke too said his fleece isn`t worth anything.That seems to be the sentiment around in our area.I saw several that needed sheared that the wool did look good.

What beautiful lambs. They are a joy.

We city dwellers can't have sheep, but my shelties herd us and our cats.
