Interesting Locals

We met these animal locals on a walk yesterday to the edge of town. I took lots of spring flower photos, there were way more flowers in bloom than I expected. Flower photos later. ~Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.

In the second sheep photo the mum-sheep is actually poking her tongue at me .. rude!

Collie dog with the stick he’d carried from the creek.

Geese in a farm paddock.

Sheep and lambs. They were eating hay but mum was expectant of treat hand-outs from the human visitors. In the second photo she appears to be licking her lips in anticipation, although I like to think she was poking her tongue at me ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Lovely to see the lambs. There are very few sheep around here but there were lots of them where I grew up. Watching the young lambs playing in the field beside us was fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Energetic lambs everywhere you look where we are ~saw heaps on our drive to Maple Glen Garden and back yesterday. Many lambs are big enough now to group together and run around together all over the place ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. A ‘bounce’ of lambs – that’s my new collective term for them, hehe! I used to watch them playing king of the castle on a rise in the ground in the field opposite our house…funny!

    1. The lambs appear to be in wonderfully great condition and look very cuddly! The mother was bleating loud at me, presumably demanding her treats. We didn’t have anything, and anyhow these darlings are obviously well cared for ๐Ÿ™‚
